Increases well for me, blooms great, nice sturdy stalks, and the color is intense. Each bloom is perfect, I don't recall seeing splotchiness or blooms that didn't open well. Also have not had any trouble w it coming back after winter.

This is my first season with TROPICAL HEATWAVE. It has flowered well and appears to have some resistence to rust. It is easily a pod and pollen parent so far.

The problem is that when you are young your life it is ruined by your parents. When you are older it is ruined by your children.
