My plant from years ago, went walkabout next door. They destroyed it. This will have to negotiate the garage!

Dd, think yours must be nearer eight. Such an impressive plant. Took out some Japanese Anemone Queen Charlotte to make space. After flowering reducing Q.C. to one small piece, that is if I get all the roots out.
