I planted these in 2011 in partial sun. They bloomed last year and came back in 2012 beautifully with large (4" to 6"), very fragrant blooms. Each plant is about 40" tall and produces 4 to 6 large flowers of gold with copper-red centers. Lovely color and terrific fragrance.
2013 update: These came back as beautiful as ever with no care from me. They get their fall cut-down and a shot or two of Miracle Grow in the summer. A carefree plant with great payoff.
