Terrific post for my area, too, where Goldstrum is overused but we don't know what else to buy.
I just discovered this blog and I'll be reading your archives because it all looks great. Susan

As soon as I posted it occurred to me that the longer-flowering of the 'Irish Eyes' may be precisely because it is such a young (first-year) plant. Not that the 'Fulgida' is overgrown or anything, but most plants flower and hold fresh foliage longest when they are young. That said, I do still like 'Irish Eyes' both to contrast with 'Fulgida' and because 'Fulgida' is so common that you can spot it with your peripheral vision while driving downthe street.
