Extremely prolific and early bloomer. Very shrubby, compact plant (about 2' or so) that will sprawl a bit without a little support. Will have around a half dozen full blooms on it at any given time in the fall in my yard. Be warned, however, that this is absolutely NOT a good cutting variety. If the blooms make it inside without drooping I'm surprised.
