Slow to establish. Hope it make it through winter.
from Denver, CO
No growth the first season. Just stayed alive. Hope it make it through the winter and grows this year. Not sure if I will recommend it yet or not? Tried it from seed in past and no luck with that either.
from Casper, WY
By the end of the season, this plant was spreading and blooming. A winner right out of the gate!

from Indianapolis, IN
I have these plants in a sunny, dry-ish area, along a sidewalk mixed in with some coreopsis and echinacea. Due to the sun heating the walk, it tends to try out the area quickly (even after it rains) so I needed plants that could handle drier soil conditions, but could also tolerate wetter soil when it happened. They are a bit slow to take off, at least in my experience. I bought some a few years ago and they're just now really growing strong.

from high desert NV
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!!
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.
