I started with one rhizome of Jillaroo. Last year it had two blooms. This year I've had a consistent show of twelve+ blooms at a time, for more than two weeks, and it's still going strong! The falls have a slight olive green cast, which looks striking with the purple standards. Beautiful, intense color and easy to grow. One of my favorites!
