I have grown Sue Rothbauer for many years. Burrowing critters got to this one two years ago and I thought it was a goner but this past year I had several fans that bloomed for 4 weeks. The scape height is as registered so this one needs to be in the front of the bed.

I have had this plant since 2015, and it has been slow to settle in. It did bloom in 2016 but I only show one photo of it that year and it showed insect damage on the bloom. It did multiply the next year but it still had very few blooms, nothing outstanding about it so far. So I am hoping this year it will do better.
