    Maybe it was mislabeled?

    American Revolution has bloomed every year, fairly long season but no rebloom. It blooms a dark true red, not at all what I thought it would be. Storm of the Century and Caribbean Frank League are true to catalog color. NE PA Zone 4b

    Sometimes just plain elegant is as good as reblooms. The color & surface structure & color on these blooms are so finished, it is hard to believe they aren’t ‘real silk’ flowers!!! I’ve grown it since a friend bought it from you in the ’80’s & I brought it to Virginia with me in ’03. I get extended bloom time because it is spotted all over the property in small clumps – all of which begin & end blooming sometimes weeks apart depending on the weather. 🙂

    I agree this one does not rebloom for me either but it has a very long bloom season and is very striking. In fact out of over 200 cultivars I own it is one of my top 5 favorites.

    Don’t grow this one for the rebloom, there isn’t any, and there are plenty of nicer darks. Though I bought plants from the originator back in the late 80’s, they never bloomed more than once and their “oncer” season is not that long either. I finally dug up all the clumps I had in 2002 and gave them away. Though a few straggler plants still remain, there is no good reason to have a planting of this one take up precious real-eastate in even a moderately sized garden.

    This is a striking plant!! Very tough and beautiful. It has not, however, rebloomed for me and I have had 2 clumps for 3 years now.
