Comment: Robust and vibrant plant that was an exceptionally easy transplant and will be an honoured addition to my landscape. It probably will be a perennial here in Montgomery, AL. with usage of frost cloth.

Comment: I waited a year to get this unique plant. Last year it was sold out. Very satisfied with quality of plant received. Foliage was healthy and it had a lot of blooms and buds. Grows pretty fast. Since I received it 3 weeks ago it has added 6 inches.
