  • This is very hardy on the northeastern plains of Colorado. We have cold winters and hot summers with little moisture. It is a consistent steady bloomer. I use it in pots as well as in my flower garden.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
