A much softer and paler color than catalog would have you think (check images). And that's fine if that's what you are looking for, I was hoping for something more intense. Flowered May 4th here in zone 7 and is just about winding down, so that would be about two weeks of bloom. Definitely a double late, and I could swear the package described it as a double early but that may be my mistake. 16" high. Works well set against Grape Hyacinths (then again what doesn't :-))
