    • Planted three of these on the west side of our house. The first year the deer tasted two of them and spit them out but the plants came back anyway. This year all three are healthy and blooming and the deer have left them alone. The flowers this year are larger than last and are beautiful. I would definitely buy more of these. I deadhead mine just because I don't like the look of the dead flowers left on the plant.

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • We planted six of these this spring and they are putting on quite a show. We couldn't be more pleased. Additionally, the packaging and service from PW was excellent.

    • I planted this in a container last year. It performed well and was covered with pretty pink flowers until September. I am in zone 7 and expected the plant to survive, especially since we had a mild winter. Well it is now the end of May and it looks dead as a doornail. There is no sign of life. I was so excited to get this since I do not have room for traditional butterfly plants which grow much too large for my landscape. Don't know if I want to take a chance and order another. I am an experienced gardener, so I can't understand what happened with this particular plant. Very frustrating.
