Classy Claire has a huge beautiful flower and is an easy to grow plant. My only negative with the flower is the bud color looks as if the bud may be rotten. Once it opens, however, it is lovely. It is not a true yellow, so careful selection of companion plants will highlight it best. I will probably move it away from the true yellow plants it is near.
