I have been eyeing this plant all summer at one of our local nurseries - not quite convinced that it will survive my zone 6 winter, no matter what they say. Finally I bought it at the end of season clearance. They recommended a well-drained area and well mulched for the winter.
It is just beautiful, and I do hope it makes it. We'll see...
