Funny how tastes differ...I'm very fond of my A. amurense.  I suppose
they're what gets called var. robustum; they make very stout, chunky
plants; the inflorescences are good-sized (from memory); the leaves are
handsome and very full; and the plants spread rapidly to make a really
nice colony.  What's not to like about it?  It also blooms before almost
anything else (probably more or less concurrent with my sikokianums, but
those have a recurring death wish, which amurense does not), and
consistently sets seed in colorful, large-berried seedheads.

Yeah, I like it!
