Takes heat , drought, and sun very well. Nicely fragrant and a vigorous grower in my garden. My plants are tall and tower over a lot of the other varieties I have growing in my garden. The blooms are a darker purple than the description and the petals tend to be narrower than the standard as well. The colors are very bold and demand your attention for sure! This was the one that got me hooked on daylilies.
