Gardeners' Notes:

Several of these plants were given to me by a gardening friend last season. They survived temperatures as low as 28 F on a few nights this winter with no frost or freeze damage. They are easy to grow and flower without any special attention.

I didn't know the plants botanical name until I saw this photo in the DG Newsletter. Thanks, Giancarlo, for the pix!
