I would concur with Mantis' observations. It is great plant for the northern garden.

Considering it had gotten lost amongst a tangle of other plants, it has grown well for me but has not flowered more than a couple buds per year. This spring I moved it into a much more open space receiving plenty of sun. It has already responded with 4 scapes and plenty of buds coming! Looking forward to taking pics this summer.

The first year this has bloomed in my garden, every bloom is beautiful. Holds its color well here too, although this has been a cooler year than normal so far. I wonder how it does when temps are over 90? Nice height & bud count, I'm very happy with this plant.

Mary's Baby has done well here it is increasing and has a good number of buds considering it is about three years in my garden.
If you want to be happy for a lifetime plant a garden!
Faith is the postage stamp on our prayers!
