Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral canipity On Apr 25, 2010, canipity from Parkesburg, PA wrote:

Tried this as an alternative to Stachys "Hidalgo" which does not survive winters here in zone 6b. This spring when I checked to see if it had survived the winter I was discouraged to see the spot where it was growing was lifeless. What I did see though was at least a dozen new plants where it had layered itself on the ground from the summer before. Good if you like stachys babies but bad if you want them to stay in one spot.

I planted these in March 2006. Unfortunately, I planted them on a West-facing wall that doesn't get full sun until around 5 p.m. They have had a hard time surviving the summer with a lot of TLC. They would probably fare better with some afternoon shade.
