I've had "Surprisingly Pink" in my garden for quite some time, and it's been a very dependable, trouble-free performer. It's multiplied nicely, not rampantly (which is a good thing in my limited sunny space), increasing in bloom each year. The flower form is a heavily-ridged corduroy, with a delicate light pink color.
