Notes: I fully divided this one in spring 2011. Sold off some of it in my hosta sale and planted the rest in a border. later in the season, I rethought the border idea and started grouping it together. May move it next year.

Is that common for others? Mine has never sported a solid division.

Last year I had completely divided this one and I planted it as a border. Later in the summer, I rethought it and replanted in closer groups. Most of the small divisions have now been put into a holding bed, but this is still a strangely shaped clump as a result. I'll shape it up next year.

'Grand Tiara' has been a faster grower for me than its sport 'Grand Prize'. 2014 picture
