What a pleasant mistake this tuber turned out to be!  Mr. Optimist was shipped to us mislabelled.  I truly believe flower folk are more forgiving than others, simply because there is always beauty when the sun shines!   Well-- we couldn't be more thrilled!!!  Mr. Optimist takes a very close second to (OHHHHH!) Don Richardson Peony.
