Anner and Walter, I hope you will like Evergreen Hideaway better than 
I do (or did, I guess I should say, since it bit the dust in the rot 
of last year's wet, wet spring.  To me the green is very muddy, not 
at all a beautiful color.  The great thing about the plant, which did 
very well before the unusual conditions of last year by the way, is 
that it produces such a large number of blooms per stalk.  I have had 
as many as 12 on a bloomstalk, so one gets flowers over a long time.  
It is different, but I never thought of it as striking.  The 
hybridizer, Jack Ames, lives in the dry, irrigated country of central 
Washington, and that plant seems to reflect that.  Doesn't like to 
have wet feet at all, not at all tolerant of that condition, so keep 
that in mind when you plant it.
