Description: Indeed... next stop, the TOP of the mountain!!! And what a FUN (and quite scenic!) ride it is!!!

This plant has ALWAYS made me laugh. It's beyond "slightly different"... it's just plain... WEIRD!!! The flower is really pretty, but I'll be the first to admit that it's not exactly a "rare" scheme. However, put that flower on scapes that are SO bizarrely TALL and well-branched... and suddenly, it's just TOO COOL! Tired of having tall UF's and spiders as your ONLY choice for "back of the border" plantings? Well... HERE'S your answer! A flower that looks like it's right out of a southern garden, on a sturdy dormant plant that can hit 5' tall!!! STURDY tet dormant scapes literally LAUGH at wind and torrential downpours!

Like Dreamliner, this one can also take 2 years to hit full dimensions... but again, this is indeed a "perennial" - and not a true "fault", especially on a dormant tet. It reblooms pretty quickly too... only about a 2-week interval, which means it should rebloom in at least zone 5, though zone 4 may be iffy. Even so, the branching and bud count STILL offer up a nice long season for this high-flyin' circus gal. It's "distinctive", for SURE!!!
