I added Black Falcon Ritual in the spring of '16, and it bloomed for me for the first time in '17. What I like best about this plant is the contrast of the bright chartreuse throat and the dark curly, ruffled petals and sepals.
Pictures of BFR are all over the board. Some are really sensational. In my garden, it's a deep, deep red-purple with a subtle watermark that can have a bluer look to it.
Since it's so new to my garden, I'll leave the performance appraisals to some of the others out there. I can say it has been adding about 1 fan per year for me, so not a great increaser in my zone, yet.
