Another oldie but a goodie. I still grow this one after 20 years. It is a reliable bloomer. It is very consistent in its appearance. Hardy in Zone 5.

When I Dream does well here despite a shaded location. It has been here around four years. Nice flower and plant.

This lacked vigor for me, did not increase and bloomed just off the ground. I moved it but no improvement and finally tossed it.

I still have it, and this year it showed itself with good bud count and vivid flowers. A bit short, though.

Anything is possible. The goal is to get your own unique flower. Go for it. Maybe you will get the seed addiction too Rolling on the floor laughing
