Clothed in Glory bloomed fine from greenhouse to garden then died over the winter in the protected garden. Replaced twice and died twice. Too cold in zone 3 to 5 Maine for it.

This is the first year for my 'Clothed In Glory' plant. It bloomed yesterday and I was MORE than thrilled. To say that this flower is "edged in gold" doesn't begin to tell the whole story. It looks as though someone dusted it pure gold powder! It's an amazing cultivar...I can't wait to see what it does next year.

All the pictures shown are quite right. It comes out one color, and changes during the day. I had two scapes up with buds but not blooming, when two more started growing! And I am in the north! The blooms have been great this year, very large and full. It does have a great edge which I expect it will give to any child cultivars it has. Very strong scapes too.

I find Clothed In Glory to be a beautiful and healthy plant, and have had good luck in using the pollen for doing some interesting crosses.
