Just put these in in early July. Although not hardy here in Zone 6, will give them a try as they are somewhat protected.

Behind the rail is the flowering midnight broom and barberry bust to the right. I brought these inside last winter and they are doing great again this year. They make fabulous backdrops in dried arrangements!
