I bought this plant on clearance last summer (yes... at a big box store... hangs head in shame). I was overjoyed this morning when I saw that it had started to come back! I have it in deep shade on a north elevation and the soil is much too moist for almost anything. I am hoping to see blooms from it again. (NW Arkansas - super hot summers - and this area gets supplemental water from the plants that I have on the outside of the bed)
