Very hardy in my zone and I love the fact that it blooms every year, has many blooms and is so cheerful in color. This one is in my raised wooden bed in the L border under an oak, apple tree, and fir situation. Year three it is a large clump and will need dividing this summer.

Positive clumboy On Sep 24, 2002, clumboy wrote:

although this plant seems a little tall for the size blooms it has, the flowers are perfectly shaped every single time, and the color is nice and bright and balanced. fbo in my zone 5 garden was 7/4, and this second year transplant (acquired last fall) bloomed for close to 30 days. each double fan puts up a tall scape, and although they are fairly tall, they hold the blooms up well. stands up to watering extremely well. sets pods readily. nice bright little flower that carries well at a distance.
