Has proven over twenty years to be hardy here in North Texas. Blooms mid March through April and reliably sets seed. Long bloom spikes are unique and attractive. Have it in semi-shade and full sun with equal success. Soil is alkaline and clay although decent drainage.

Seed and plants obtained from Lynn Lowery noted plant hunter of Texas and northern Mexico.
