This will be my 3rd summer of having Happy Happy and it is not very happy in my zone. I only have gotten about 4 blooms each year and no increase. I will see how it does this summer. If it doesn't improve it will be going south.

I've had Happy Happy since fall of 2014. I was worried it may not like it here as many super frilly edged ones do not but it has done great. Bloomed 2015 at 2 fans. Bloomed 2016 as 4 fans. Divided spring 2017 and traded away 3 fans so I am back to 2 fans. I have used the pollen but not tried to set pod on it.

Love what you teach and teach what you love!

I just added this on in the Spring. It seems to be growing and hopefully I will see a bloom.

I got Happy Happy last fall from Maryott's. It was one of my earliest bloomers, but there were only four blooms. I'm hoping for rebloom. It is rusty as are all plants that I get from Maryott's, but I live the perfect form and ruffled edges.

Happy Happy has been a conundrum for me. It has never died. But it seemed to hate the winter. Bloomed after the first but not the second. So, I potted it up thinking maybe it just didn't want to be cold. No bloom. Whatever, I have a lot of others to focus on. Left it out, in the pot this year, and last I checked I had 6 scapes on it.
