I've had 2 plants for the last 3 years and they die back in the winter but come back bigger than ever in June. I just purchased 2 more. They even made it through our 2008 10" snow and 1" ice that went on for 3 weeks! I have them near a wooden fence with full sun and good drainage (on a hill). After the first year I didn't water, just let nature take care of it. But..I do live in Portland, OR. I love them as they lend a magical , airy presence to my yard.
