Grows fine in Auburn Ca Zone7-8 ish-(we are hot and dry most of the summer, it got watered one to 2x a week) grew in all light-haven't tried it in full sun yet, but didn't flower in constant shade.

very easy plant to grow and maintain. i dug up several new growths of it and placed them in various sites (sun, part-shade, front yard and back yard) to see how it would thrive. it has thrived brilliantly in every spot i put them in. it grows rapidly and blooms profusely!!
