In my garden this plant meets its stats for height and bloom size and lives up to its rust score of 5.0 each year. The bud count and branching never have been very close to the stats. I think because rust takes such a toll on the health and vigor of the plant.
In my garden the blooms always seem pale and washed out, often I have trouble distinguishing any eye or pattern on it.
The only reason I keep this plant is because I keep hoping the bud count and branching will come up as the plant matures. It is on my short list.
So far for the entire year this is the only photo I have taken of 'Magic Lake', so it has not been a very impressive season for it once again.

I have had Magic Lake for at least the last five years, and it seems to do quite well here in my garden.

Early- Medium bloom
32 to 34 inches
2-3 way branching
12 to 15 buds
fertile both ways.
exactly like the photo
can rebloom with adequate water
very nice pale lavender to pink
first flowers at 6.5", but decreases in size to 5.5"
