Love this plant, grows well in zone 4. The blooms are extra large with deep rich color on sturdy stems. I grow in acidic sandy soil and it still grows. I would recommend this anyone as it is an outstanding plant.

What a knockout! Wow! This is the most gigantic flower I have ever seen in my life. I measured a bloom the other day and it was 11 inches long! It's like a brilliant beacon in the garden. The yellow star pattern in the center is stunning. Nice substance and velvety flowers. Highly recommend.
