Very nice! I remember seeing Autumn Minaret at the Chicago Botanic Garden several years ago, it made quite an impression!

This one does. I have 2 more in my yard. One has about 20 scapes with on average 18 buds per scape. The other got moved last year and only has about 12 scapes now but will probably do better next season. They usually bloom for about 6 weeks.

I have two clumps, but it has stopped blooming due to crowding and shade weather my increasing inability to bend and dig will prevent me from building new beds remains to be seen--not to mention cutting down the sumac, blackberries, lonicera, poison ivy, virginia creeper, wild grapes,oak seedlings and thorns and thistles.-----------there are also clumps of Statuesque, Challenger, and Purity in the jungle and I wish I had never bought that blasted giant miscanthus!------------Weedy

My back fence turned into a jungle too. Looked sort of like your forest :) Wow those wild grapes.. I spent hours cleaning the fence and shrubs from it.
