I have had really good success with the plant in sunny location near the foundation on the south side of house. I have others in the back (part- shade) that are not as hefty that bloomed but remained small. I also planted it in sept. giving it some time to get settled in before the cold hit. I will plant more for sure next fall. The ones on the south side have been covered in a mass of blooms. I added wood ash to that area in sept and dec and they have just gone nuts!
