The first year I got exactly two blooms from 6 corms, and each lasted one day. I was underwhelmed. This year it produced absolutely spectacular blooms, pretty much non-stop over the course of almost 4 weeks. I am in love. Intense sky blue with yellow beards. Totally lit up the border. I will be adding more of these to my garden.

Truly did very well for me. It reproduces itself well and flourished through a very heavy winter. I just love the true blue baby blue blossoms on this gorgeous little dwarf.
