I received from mail order this spring (2012). Planted it in a western facing bed with full sun and average soil. Dallas has now reached 90 degrees (May) and it's still growing tall and blooming with minimal water. I love this plant and plan on sharing it with friends and family.

Update 9/30/12 - after my initial review, the plant "fell over" (grew sideways) and continued to grow for a while. Only when I cut it back did it give up and die. Not sure what happened but I may try it again next Spring. I'm in zone 8A (Dallas, TX).
