I like this one and it looks great in September when the leaves have lightened - though not as much as on 'Janet' or similar plants.

I've had this one a full 9 years. It hasn't grown fast, but then nothing in the garden where it is has grown fast. I think it's too close to the neighbour's Linden Tree. Picture taken July 16, 2014. I threaten to lift and divide it and try part of it elsewhere, but I don't think it will happen this autumn.
