    • I planted this last year, spring, and it grew a little, and bloomed a little. It survived the winter just fine. This year, it has grown into its full-bodied size and is now in its blooming glory. It is sturdy, and gorgeous! I've seen a lot of bumblebees attracted to it, and yes, a hummingbird has been around. I am very pleased, thank you!!!

      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • I planted this plant for the first time last year. It was beautiful, but couldn't withstand the cold during the winter. If I plant it again, which I very well may, I'll treat it as an annual.
