I received this plant back in May 2014, so it is over three years old now. It has not been a superior performer, but it has multiplied to eight fans and it has bloomed for the past three years. The blooms have been a little smaller I think on average than the listed six inches, and it appears to have a lot of different looks in my garden over the past three years. Today there were no blooms, but there were several seed pods I have set on it. So the bloom photos are from earlier dates. I pulled seven dead scapes this morning and they averaged 25 inches in height with three way branching and an average bud count of thirteen buds per scape.
Photo of plant this morning: Loaded with seed pods no blooms.
