I've had this since '05 and it's a great performer. Blooms for weeks and weeks and grows at a nice rate, not too fast, not too slow. I've put campanula "blue clips" next to it but I think I like "blue uniform" better because the flowers bloom just above the plant (in a nice mounded shape) instead of on long stems high above the plant. This year I've had a problem with slugs eating the blooms, although they leave the foliage alone!
