Growing in a pot in a sun/part-sun garden within central Indiana in 2021. This plant has amazing colors with medium-sized (1 inch) flowers. It gave us a handful of colorful blooms. However, it did not survive the extremely wet summer of 2021 in Indiana. The stem started to rot. I had to re-pot it in a high drainage potting mix and moving it indoors to let it dry out. I am giving a four-star rating as it does not have a tuber to be saved for the next year.
