'Seductor' is typically the first to bloom for me, putting out generous buds. It stands up well to our summer heat and is relatively disease-free. Good choice!

Seductor does not bloom as an Extra Early in my zone. It blooms later. Also it does not open well when nights are cool, and quickly melts on sunny days.
