I love these. I planted 3 this spring and they did very well. They are growing in a shady spot with high alkalinity and poor drainage.. The best part is the rabbits leave them alone. If they make it through our zone 6 winter, I will buy more!

Bought 3 of these. All dead :(Maria Messe, Florida, United States, 15 weeks ago
This plant is gorgeous and easy to grow. I planted it in part shade near our concrete foundation and it is perky and thriving with occasional watering. I love it and will buy more!Christine, Illinois, United States, 30 weeks ago
