Kenora Superb is a great producer. It flowers from mid-July to mid-November in my zone 9 garden. Be sure that you have a good structure to stake it with. It's a big heavy cultivar and it belongs at the back of the order at six to seven feet tall. Flowers perfectly every time.

Leaf miners and snails are it's primary enemies. Watch for powdery mildew early in the fall. I do use sprinklers however.

Highly recommended!
