I fell in love with this variety from afar....beautiful color, and I agree with the submitting gardner, it would be awesome planted in drifts.

nice, reliable older plant. fbo in my zone 5 garden was 7/11, bloom time lasted about 30 days. the color, which is not as pink in my garden as the photo, holds well throughout the day. the fans are nice sized and put up a scape on each mature single. it will set pods pretty well. the color in my garden has a distinct orange or terracotta quality about it making it harmonize better with warm rather than cool colors. would look nice planted in a drift of 3 or more clumps. a good choice for a reasonable price that gives nice value in the garden.
