Positive Glenn3 On Jul 1, 2010, Glenn3 from Camden, ME wrote:

Gorgeous blossom, especially the first blooming large buds. Deals with Maine winter conditions very well, although about every six or eight years it dies back. Can form a large arching shrub in the right climate. Rebloom is scant for us, still, it is worth it for the beauty of its early blooming alone.
