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.....Ani Masalaitis, Pennsylvania, United States, 16 weeks ago

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.ConnieJo, Nebraska, United States, 7 years ago
