*** Growing near Houston, TX: sub tropical zone 9a. Mild winters, hot, extremely humid summers that last half the year. ***
Purchased Aug 2014 from Rose Petals Nursery.
Notes: Overall, this was a very weak plant for me. Maybe a budded version would have performer better in my garden conditions, or perhaps the heat was simply too much. I did like the flowers, but won't try this one again.
5/10/2015- planted in garden
9/4/2015- summer was hard on this one. Died back to crown. We will see...
5/2016- Making a weak rebound attempt.
10/2016- Another hard summer. This one may not be able to take the heat.
3/5/2017- Seems to think it wants to live. I planned to dig it out, but it's growing and blooming. We will see...
