  • 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.

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