I grew this plant successfully for several years, and it even increased in size, but then all of a sudden one year it did not come back. While it was here, it was gorgeous, and the flowers lasted a very long time in a vase. I might try this again in a pot that I can move inside for the winter.

I planted this in 2015 and have not seen it return. I have followed the instructions. I will wait until the end of this growing season and that is it. kind of disappointed.lisa schmuecker, Iowa, United States, 3 years ago
I was excited to see that I could grow this flower in my yard in zone 6; saves on buying at store. It was planted last year (2017), and thus far (May10, 2018) I do not see any signs of growth. The NE has had crazy warm/snow early weather, so I don't know if it impacted the plant, but I hope it bounces back. It is very pretty.Kathy Fitzpatrick, 3 years ago
Planted four plants in a huge container with well prepared soil as described for best growing conditions. They grew very well until frost, but did not bloom. During winter the plants, roots and all just disappeared to nothing. We had an average winter for north TX, two cold periods of 1-2 days down to 18F in the morning. I kept the pot lightly moist at all times because it seldom rains. Complete disappointment.LARRY E ATNIP, Texas, United States, 3 years ago
