      It is in my landscape, it is doing well, except when the deer find it, still it survives if not thrives. Without deer, it would be awesome, not the plants fault.

        I live in Gallup, New Mexico where gardening is a challenge. The Major Wheeler had buds on it until Christmas and stayed green all winter. It survives in very cold temps and lots of wind. It is getting a lot fuller on the trellis. A very hardy plant

        The plants were shipped beautifully and I planted them right away. They don't seem to be growing all that quickly, but hopefully now that we are starting the 2nd growing season they will take off.

          We started planting these 4 years ago and add a few more to an unattractive fenceline each year. Hummingbirds love them, the flowers are beautiful and they are low maintenance.
