I purchased Blue Venom in the spring of 2016, as a bare root two fan division. It did well that first summer and both fans sent up scapes and bloomed. I had it in a temporary location and moved it this spring into a garden bed. It is going to bloom this summer, but has not done so yet.

It has done well so far, and it over wintered well. So far, I am happy with it. I will update this post after it blooms this season.
Update:
I checked it today, and it has increased from two fans to six fans in one year.

Can I just check, is this plant a tet or a dip.?

Registered as tet on database but on AHS database it is registered as dip.

Has three child plants all registered as dip too.

Can I assume that it is a mistake on the database as just looking at the seeds Valerie very kindly sent to me, Blue Venom has been crossed with Dream Blue (diploid)?

Thank, guys.

Scatterbrain - You are correct, it is a Dip. I submitted a change in the database. If a tip is associated with the proposed change, I will forward the tip on to you. Thank you for catching that! Thank You!

Good catch on that in the database. Obviously, I knew it was a dip when I made my cross. I got 19 seeds in that pod. I started 6 seeds, and had 5 healthy seedlings to plant outside in June.
