This is a wonderful double. The pictures above are an accurate representation. In my garden, it starts to bloom mid to late season and goes until frost. It is a front of the border plant as the scapes are terribly tall. Blooms are above the foliage, as the foliage arches nicely. I don't grow many doubles and I sought this one out. It is popular with visitors. Increases well and blooms are nicely spaced on the scapes.

A beautifully formed and shaded bloom. I do wish it were a bit taller, though. Makes a nice clump.
