Gorgeous, vigorous, and easy to grow plant. I have six of them in full baking sun. There’re on drip, so do get ample water. Great foliage and lots of blooms and here in NC (zone 7b) they’re still blooming in October. Only two negatives.....Japanese beetles love the foliage (as do deer), so they will need protection.
