    • This is such a lovely plant, and it performed beautifully. I must say, though, after lows in the mid-20s the past two nights, it definitely is not hardy in zone 7.. It's a very sad plant this afternoon, and I pulled it out. I will buy it again...just won't expect it to live through the winter.

    • I planted three Waikiki Sunset lysimachia plants in a mixed planter that got afternoon sun. Despite what the website says, they definitely did not like that much sun and they bleached terribly. After several weeks I dug them up and moved them to another planter in partial shade, where they did much better. They are a small, spreading, slightly trailing plant. The yellow flowers are very attractive. The heaviest flowering was in June, but scattered blossoms were produced throughout the entire season. It is mid-October now and the weather has been chilly, but the plants still look good. Now that I know what kind of light they need, I would happily plant them again.

    • Unsure why this is being listed as an annual. I’m in Zone 9 and my Plants have been in the ground for 3 years and they always look beautiful! I adore this plant. Adds so much interest and color even when not in full bloom.

    • I purchased this plant for the first time this summer. I planted with Bubblegum Supertunia's in a container which got full morning sun. I plan on repotting and keeping indoors to hopefully use next year. I love a plant that gives beautiful foliage as well as blooms. Also the mix of pink (supertunia) and yellow blooms with the green and white leaves added a burst of color.

    • Beautiful in a window box with a red tuberous begonia, an ornamental leaf begonia, Dusty Miller and variegated vinca. I hope I can winter it over indoors!

    • I loved this plant, I found it changed leaf color slightly with changes in sun/shade and heat/chill. Loved the changes too. Really effective plant in many ways.

    • A true proven winner! Works beautifully in containers & baskets as a foil for blooming annuals or in the garden as a bright & colorful groundcover. Performed very well here in Z 7b and is still going as of 11/20.

    • This plant performed beautifully in partial shade. Minnesota is hardiness zone 4, so I brought it in after the first frost. I am probagating the mother plant so I have more to use next spring.
