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).

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.
