|I've been delighted with Hello Screamer. It has been surprisingly reliable. The picture here exaggerates the color contrasts a bit, but it is showy.

|What a great CV this one is. A gift from my Sister last year and it has already won me over. Although a single fan, its performing rather well blooming on a sturdy 30+ inch scape. Cant wait to get this one out of the pot its planted in and in a permanent bedding area. Cant speak to any increase yet, but the face is remarkable.
Here are a few of my photos taken this season.

|This is what 'Hello Screamer' looked like in my garden today after all the rain we have had for the past few days and even heavy rain last night. The plant has performed pretty well in my garden, it has probably eight to ten fans at least in the clump now.The bud count is not very high, 8-10 buds per scape and only two way branching. The scapes average about 33 inches in my garden. The bloom size is around 5.5 inches in my garden. So it has performed way below the stated bud count by the hybridizer (21-25), my bloom size is a little larger(maybe because there are less buds to support), the height is right on the mark.
The big drawback for me with this plant is rust, here is a of photo to show what the foliage looks like today.
The rust on this plant is not as bad as some of the plants in the garden currently, but it might get worse still, or it might clear up some as the heat begins to rise. No matter, either way it has quite a bit of rust right now! I did count eight scapes currently in the clump.
