'Starlight' was acquired last year from Parkland Perennials.  I wasn't dissappointed.  When spring arrived and signs of life began to show 'Starlight' had 5 stems and looked like it would go forever.  Even with our fluctuating spring weather, 1 week of heat to downright wintery conditions for 1 week and rain it still pushed forth and now it was showing 5 swelling buds.  I couldn't (should have) remove the blooms for the first season but what a show.  I am not sorry at all.
