We planted the Tiny Tim 2 years ago. It is doing very well, but what we are experiencing are flies. There are always flies on this plant
and we can't get rid of them. Is there anyone else that has this problem with the Tiny Tim?
We are actually thinking about digging them up.

I planted 3 of these a few years ago. They were well behaved, grew in a small roundish form, bloomed nicely with interesting blooms. They were a little bigger the second year and seemed to be doing fine...but then two of them seemed to go"doing fine" to dead in a short period of time.
Now this spring the last one greened out like all was well..but now it is turning brown and dying too. I am wondering if this is just a short lived perennial.
