      Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.
    • My 2 plants are in the correct location, properly taken care of, but - apparently our deer have not read that this plant is "deer resistant". In the three years I have had them, I have yet to see a single blossom on them. Everything is chewed off. I really wanted some color in front of my green shrubs. Oh well.....

    • Purchased 2 of these and neither survived the winter. What a shame because I thought they would be beautiful in my yard.

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
    • Love the beauty of this shurb. It is a great surprize everytime it blooms in the middle of spring here in Nebraska. I watch for the first sign of blooms and am always surprized to find them open when I least expect.
