|I received this cultivar from Lisa (Lilydaydreamer) in March 2016. She sent me 3 fans. It bloomed in May 2016 and was a pretty bloom. Unfortunately, it is prone to rust in my garden and zone. Last year, 2017 it did not bloom at all and died down to only 2 fans. I just checked and I still have 2 fans, but they are now very small fans. For whatever reasons, it has not done well for me. I suspect it will be gone by next year.
I will say though, that I love the blooms. The blooms have a blending of orange to light peach colors and a dark pink outline pattern that I really liked. It does fade in the sun as the day goes by. My blooms were approximately 4.6" to 5", not the 5.5" as registered. I can't remember if I crossed it and got any seeds. I think I was reluctant to try breeding it because of the rust susceptibility. My hybridizing goal has been to create rust-resistant seedlings.
Here are 2 photos from May 2016:
