I've planted these shrubs throughout my yard and, one by one, they're dying from ground voles eating their roots. They must be very tasty and smell yummy because voles seek them out, even when surrounded by other shrubs. This is a lovely plant, but not if you have ground vole issues. I've had large specimens killed after growing happily for yrs.
