After a winter of neglect and dying back to the ground MEM is letting me know she's back with this single big flower. There are more to bloom in other areas of the plant. I didn't give her any shelter this winter and she suffered a lot of frost damage.
I cut most of mine to the ground keeps them fresh no rotted wood and I think they bloom better doing this. They do put up with alot of neglect and keep flowering not as many flowers. I have this one too has that funny slit in bottom skirt nice big flowers
