Was beautiful in the nursery 3 years ago; Since I put it in the ground in part sun / part dappled shade,it has never bloomed again. It seems healthy; is nice and green; just no flowers; folks @ the nursery say it may take some time, but 3 years?? any ideas?

Really beautiful aster-like flowers for several weeks in the summer. I planted them a year ago last spring and they have woken up and appear nice and compact, but bushy. No blooms yet, it is only mid April as I write this, but I will be very happy if it puts on as good as show this year as it did last year.

It is supposed to be drought tolerant, I cannot comment on that because I planted it near my outdoor faucet, instead I will tell you that the Dianthus I planted right next to these beauties did not return, probably they drowned from all the wetness.

I love this flower and I hope to divide them this or next year so I can have some more of these pretty, carefree flowers.
