GOLDEN COMPASS, 26" scape, 6" wide flower with bright yellow petals and a bold purple eyezone that covers much of the petal -- very striking flower.

It has not bloomed for me at my new place yet, but due to very happy shrub, I think shade may be to blame! It will move to more sun soon, and I expect to see it again next May. This flower was an instant favorite for me.
