About Me Master Gardener
Its still early for a review but you asked!! And I am in zone 3 and just planted these this last year so they are young and yet to survive our winters. But its a warm winter, they are in a raised bed and protected with bags of leaves for their winter sleep so I am very hopeful they will get established.

The heads (flowers) are quite large and colorful. The blue foliage is attractive and adds a different color to the garden. Tho still a baby (I've had it six months) the plant is nearly 4 ft tall. Definitely a keeper.

Another addition to my grass garden. Did very well this first year. Quite tall and had beautiful blooms.
from Monte Vista, CO
Worthless starts. Two years in a row I've purchased four plants - arrived weak and promptly died after planting despite carefully locating and tending.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
