It was not a great grower for Moonshine, either, but I have given 
a _lot_ of it away (>$100 in auctions and raffles in my main local 
society, plus a few to individuals), and I expect to be able to 
give 20 rhizomes to our Region 15 trek plus several stalks for 
table centerpieces.

I like the fact that it reblooms in CA; it does not do so here. 

In addition to late summer or autumn rebloom, it has the habit 
of throwing up secondary stalks a month and a half before the 
main bloomstalk. I counted at least 19 blooms from one fan. 
And something like 90% of the blooms have flounces.
