AMAZING for ARIZONA! I bought and planted 8xquart size Beyond Pink'd in April (as soon as they were available) in full sun surrounded by gravel. If you live in AZ you know by April it's already extremely hot with temps in the low 90s. These have done great, especially for their first year. I have them on irrigation and have supplemented a little water through the summer when temps are above 105. In our clay soil, they do need a little extra iron and compost/mulch to prevent minimal scorching above ~110. It's September and these beauties are starting to flower and are about 2 feet wide and 18'' tall. I can't wait to see how they do next year.
