I so love the look of this plant and so wanted one in my mostly drought hardy landscape. However, I work with a base of red clay and, even with amendments and a slope, I guess Texas Ranger just could not take the heavy spring rains. I see this plant for sale every spring in the big box stores, but local nurseries that try to sell only plants that are reliably hardy here in Oklahoma City do not stock them. I would love whether anyone has been able to keep one of these beauties alive in this area and, if so, how. My lavender and rosemary look wonderful, so I'm disappointed that this lovely plant didn't do well for me the first time.
