I got a start from a friend in Texas about 3 years ago and it still comes back every year. I have shared it with others in our area and they too have had good luck. It does not seem to be as large at when it came from Texas, but I guess that is to be expected since this in "Just" Oklahoma. Yes, I am a native of Oklahoma. Ha
