Bloomed well the first season it was planted, and has spread pretty rapidly -- this year (year 2), I have more than double the number of plants and they've spread from 1 ft. sq. to 2 ft. sq. Mine bloom in early June.

LITTLE GREENIE has yellow green, pointed petals, nice shape! [Winniford 1972]. Parentage; (Gay Party X Green Flutter)
It has a 4" flower on an 18" scape, mid-season bloomer (mid May here in west central Florida). Its flowers have pointed petals which makes a nice shape in the garden. Mine has been reluctant to bloom all the maybe six years I've had it, but it persists and it is small, and now it has better dirt. I am hoping that it will perk up and bloom well next May. If it does I will take and post a photo of it to go with carolann's.

The second time LITTLE GREENIE bloomed, I'd gotten GREEN DRAGON and it bloomed at the same time. That will probably never happen again, but I loved them together. Both blooms have that great green background to their yellow.
