I'm going to disagree with the hardiness of this glad. Atom is one of the few glads that can survive a cold winter.....not a wet one but a cold one. It has over wintered here in z5 for me before, not on a regular basis but has made it. I know one person is z6 who has had it come back 3 or 4 years now and she doesn't lift it in the fall....this is one tough glad!

pixie that's good to know. I live in 6b and would love to have lots of bulbs, but I don't want to dig them all up every fall and replant in the spring. I'll have to look for these one and give it a try. It is so pretty!!!
