  • Planted in spring 2016. Survived first summer in a full-sun location very well. Hot and dry summer, weekly watering were perfect. Although one shrub looks a little weak compared to the others. Love the color, it's a highlight next to the dark green foliage of other plantings.

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