I planted one potted plant mid season last year in a part/sun location and it performed awesomely. It had runners grow out from plant. This spring I transplanted those to another garden and they easily adapted. Highly recommend. Mine are planted in front of large Dark Green Shrubbery and they look awesome from the street.
