I tracked down a 'Don Stevens' to go in my new front garden - it didn't flower this season, probably not enough sun.
Some history about this plant in my garden: it came out of Art Wrede's Azalea Patch Nursery in Maryland. In the late 2000's place his was hit by a tornado that tore-up his hoop houses and put him out of business. The remnants of his stock were left to the elements and deer. They soon became overgrown with vines and weeds. He still had his "special" area for his breeding program. When I went down to visit him, he would let me wander the area and salvage some things. This is one of those plants.
