I found this plant at a local Home Depot. I bought two. It has done BEAUTIFULLY with lots of blooms. I am eager to see if it comes back so nicely next year. I have them in as full sun as I can get in my yard. With the rains we've had over the past few weeks here in NH, the results have been great. If you can find this plant, I recommend it highly with it's pretty purple flowers.

Beautiful plant. I was lucky enough to buy it in Lewisville, TX many years ago. Unfortunately, someone else must of thought it was great, too, because they STOLE it right out of my planting bed in front of my apartment. I came home one day and there was nothing in that spot but a hole. I've been searching for more ever since. Thanks to DG I'm ordering some today.
