I bought this at a local garden center from their clearance rack, along with a 'Pink Lanterns', last fall. I wasn't sure what I was going to get! They began new spring growth in my zone 6 garden, in March, and this one got to be about 12" tall (whereas the 'Pink Lanterns' got to be about 3-4'!). Very pretty, delicate yellow color.
