  • Always an eye catcher this one. The sharp white within the yellow makes such a bright spot in the garden. Even with it's old fashion shape, visitors put it hight in they list of favorites! -- LoicT - 06 Dec 2009
  • TB 'Showcase' bloomed at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, zone 4b, approximately May 30 - June 10, in 2017. This variety does have some light purple based foliage at the base of the leaves at least during and after flowering. It also has some purple coloring on its spathes. -- HollyJohnson2017 -04-01 - 30 Sep 2017
