    • Planted a quart-size plant last fall (zone 5b) along a south-facing wall. Survived the winter (OK, I know it was a mild one!) and come spring it was full of flowers, even though the plant was only 6" - 8" high at the time. Amazing! It is full of leaves now and growing well. Looking forward to next years performance.

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • I was impressed with the quality of the plants received. They won't bloom until next spring, but the plants were healthy and began to thrive immediately in their new home.
