Beautiful and returned back bigger and stronger the next year. Must be at least 6b zone hardy. I have them in an open unprotected area of the yard and they came up.

Its my first year planting flowers at this location.They were planted in mid march.I used three different locations.One hard as a rock clay considered mostly sunny.One semi shade
and well draining.One reasonably decent soil with full sun.The ones planted in the worst soil are doing the best.They are currently around 2 to 3 ft in hgt.Well draining soil next [almost 6 to 7 inches in hgt difference}followed by
optimal growing conditions in dead last.Figures doesnt it.
Note everything that Ive planted this year has matured late
This is why, Im still holding out hope, that they will eventually

I love this glad, tricolor pastels pink, yellow and white really shout spring. Easy to grow, mine are planted in full sun. Only minus is that it gets 5' tall, so blooms must be staked or else they will droop. Since I have many planted, I cut them for indoor flower arrangements as soon as they bloom, that way I don't bother with staking.
