I bought two of these last summer and I put one in full sun, hot, dry, clay and tuff soil. It is doing fantastik! The other I put in part sun/part shade and he isn't nearly as happy. I plan on moving him into the sun. I was quite amazed at how "happy" they are in soil that just about nothing else would grow in.

I loved the pictures of these plants and their hardiness and low water use. had hoped to get some hardy flowers started at our rural church. Soil is lean and well-drained. However, Flagstaff in 2015-16 had an odd winter with very little snow and some fierce cold. Also, I could only get out to water plants once a week during the winter. I mulched with a probably less-than-desirable material - medium-fine cinders. Plants rapidly browned off and never came back.

Small plant and the deer made it smaller.

The deer dug it out of the ground and after replanting it showed no vigor.

from Deer Lodge (zone 4a), MT
I love this plant species for its use as a low water, low growing plant that brings intense (yellow) color...I have it growing in the greys of wooly thyme, and imagine it would be beautiful with any of the groundcover veronicas, like the liwanensis or wooly varieties, and also have it next to the intense blues and purples of the taller veronicas or sages. When I get the stones/bricks laid for a patio, I will incorporate it with other plants between the pavers for a texture, height and color variation. I make sure to support it off the ground for greater stability and to help keep it dry when young.

This little workhorse shines right at the edge of my garden next to the sidewalk and street. With our heat and desicating winds, this perky little plant continues to send up bright blossoms all season long.

Small starting plant yields great flowers!
from Central Oregon, High Desert, Madras, Ore
Use this plant for a natural setting in casual landscaping. Not a dramatic "bed" flower plant but rather a small plant in a natural undeveloped garden.

from Farmington, NM
This plant has done very well in our dry climate. It was easy to establish and has spread in open areas where I wanted it to fill in. It adds color to our high desert environment.

Planted this one in in a dry gravel area and it overwintered nicely. Flowered lightly the first year, and am really looking forward to this year, now that this plant has "dug in its heels" it ought to really put on a great show!

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.
