Plant had four stems, many flowers, though just moved last fall. However, something (must have been deer as buds were at least five foot above ground) ate all of the buds off one stem. Others bloomed beautifully. My plant has slightly less gold markings than the pictures displayed, but that is normal since it is a strain (that is, grown from seed). Seems too vigorous here for a pure Oriental--I expect it is an Orienpet (Oriental X Trumpet hybrid). A striking addition to any flower garden and needs no staking in spite of its height.
