I love Miss Jessie. She has always bloomed profusely even during a summer long drought. She has multiplied very nicely in the 4 years it has been in my garden. We have full sun and no windbreak where she is planted and she seems to thrive there. A very nice plant.

Miss Jessie was the beginning of my hybridizing efforts back in the early 90s, She is the pod parent to Lillian's Sweet Thang, and grandparent to my near whites, Lillian's Thin ice, Lillian's White Lies, and Lillian's Vapor Trail. A dormant that does great in the south.

I just got a start Miss Jessie last year after admiring it in a club members garden. So it has not bloomed for me yet and I was afraid that the start I got may not make it. But I am really excited to see it in bloom. Great to see that MJ was a successful parent!

I don't expect any acorns, Becky... maybe by the end of summer I will have a worthy comment to add about MJ's performance Thumbs up

I have had Miss Jessie for many years, in the difficult Island bed. Despite full sun all day, no additional food or water and lots of weed competition, she always puts on a nice show.
