I planted this back in 2014 and it has bloomed in 2015, 2016 and 2017. Just this year it seems to have settled in. There were no blooms on it this morning, but reblooms will be opening tomorrow so I'll add a photo then. There were only two scapes to be checked and two rebloom scapes on on it now.
the two scapes I pulled averaged 19 inches and had 3 way terminal branching, with an average bud count of 12. The blooms have been right at the stated size of 5.5 inches. The plant has increased at a moderate rate.
Went back out this morning to take a photo. We got an inch and a half of rain late yesterday and last night but this bloom still looked good.
