    Comments about High Country Gardens Dalea (Petalostemon) purpureum:

    Thrives well on hot, south-facing clay hillside with little water.
    Minor floral display the first year, but came back bigger and more beautiful the following seasons.
    Foliage is virtually evergreen in current location.

    Tried these for 2 years, all died. Second year, I took extra care in planting, location, watering and feeding. The three grew about 2-3" and died back. No evidence of any return for 2015.(so far?) Will not order these again!!
