|Very dependable here in Ohio, and mine did rebloom here, where most do not. The only negative I had with it was that it
frequently showed a yellow cast unlike Moonlit Masquerade which is a warm pale peachy pink perfect color. It will
increase very well, and has the strappy unusual form flowers that are not ruffled- but it is dependable!

|I have had EQ for many years. I had it planted in a location that didn't get sun until mid afternoon and for soooo many years it never bloomed. Just barely kept the same number of fans. Then FINALLY I got around to moving it to a sunny spot where it now gets lots of sun and a little afternoon shade (perfect). Now for the last couple years it has begun to increase and blooms very nicely. I even used it in a cross this summer (2017).
We'll see what we get

|I planted Egyptian Queen purchased from Sterrett Gardens in Virginia in August 2017 and was surprised to see it bloom in early October. I love its flower and look forward to watching its performance starting in 2018.|

|Egyptian Queen is new to me this year, having planted it in late fall. So far, the leaves are looking good through this winter. I can't wait to see it bloom, and will post a comment and photos when it does.|
