  • New to me this year, now my favorite. I bought it at Home Depot, lost the ID tab, and was desperate to find out its name in case I could not overwinter it. My very most favorite plant this year, and I have hundreds. I put it in a painted rustic red clay Mexican pot on an iron stand. Wow, you should see it. It was not in full sun all day, only morning until 2 sun. I didn't plant anything else with it. It has given me so much pleasure this season. Thank you.
