  • JI 'Pinkerton' bloomed at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, approximately, July 3-11, in 2017. The blooms only reached a height of 26"; this could have been due to late freezing temperatures this spring, or because this was a fairly small clump, and had not reached maturity. -- HollyJohnson2017 -04-01 - 04 Aug 2017
