I just bought this plant few days ago at local nursery and planted it, looks beautiful. The reason I bought this plant is it is supposed to be left alone by rabbits. The description says it resists rabbits but just two days after I planted it in my garden, the rabbit pretty much ate all its leaves and flower buds. It doesn't resist rabbits at all, wrong description.
