I planted this tuber in the fall (late) of 2008. It survived the winter and actually put out a flower the summer of 2009. I have given it extra winter protection, along with my tree peonies and other herbaceous and intersectional peonies, and have great hopes for a bigger more prolific plant summer 2010.

7-9-12: This plant is now about 48x48" and loaded with blooms. I haven't give it winter protection since the first year. It, and Julia Rose, another beautiful intersectional, continue to grow out and somewhat up. Julia Rose is closer to 50" tall now.
