"What a fun Party Girl!"... is exactly what I said when this plant started blooming it's first mature year! There was immediately no doubt who I should include in the name... my friend Maureen Faber, of Michigan! The girl is a real go-getter... she just never stops! This flower, as much like her as I could possibly get, is mesmerizing shade of DEEP saturated lemon yellow... with a huge waxy green throat that extends well out onto all it's segments. The overall effect is a cheek-smackin' "wake up" from the garden! Oh yes... I think I found a good namesake for that wonderful gal-pal, Maureen!

Indeed, this is NOT your "average yellow"... with such rebloom, and up to 5-way branching! Great scapes for exhibitions, winning blue ribbons in the "extra large" category all over the country. Bloom is different every time, and as large as 12". Fragrant, to boot! I snapped a shot while walking by a display area of this hottie in 2013... not the best pic, but you can at least get the "intensity" of her IN the garden!

Great breeder for cool UF's as well... such as "Knickers in a Twist" (Owen, 2013), and "Pom Squad" (Owen, 2016).

Honestly, this plant is one that's VERY close to my heart... BEYOND just being a "favorite", and for well over a decade now. It's the only one of my intro's I use for mass plantings in the gardens "proper", and nearly EVERY person who visits the gardens takes home with them.
