For some reason, this clump is making pale flowers, as well as "normal" ones. I don't recall spraying any pesticide or herbicide in this garden (at least not in the last 12 months. . . ) The second photo shows how the beard is nearly all white, instead of the color described in the registration. It could have been late frost damage as well . . .

Seeing the parentage of this beauty gives me a few ideas . . . ;-)
