I got this one from stilldew last fall. It settled in well and is up and green this spring. I'll update later in the season when I have more to share.

I received 2 fans from Stilldew last September 2017. Planted them in a rectangular container.

Today it produced it's first bloom. A stunning bloom!!! This first bloom is larger than the hybridizer's stats. It has increased from 2 fans to 6 fans in 9 months. The scapes are shorter than what the hybridizer measured, but that often happens when a cultivar is divided and transplanted. (The scapes will likely get taller over the next couple of years.) This is an older cultivar that I think should not be overlooked.

I am impressed with the fan increase and also that it appears to be rust resistant. But the thing that gets me the most is the bloom! It is a real eye-catcher! I will definitely be using this one for hybridizing as well. I really like this cultivar a lot! Lovey dubby
