I picked up 2 of these at Lowe's last April to fill out my pots. It's mid-October and they're still going strong. The heat this summer didn't seem to really faze them and my lazy watering schedule didn't bother them: definite winners.

This is a beautiful plant and works well in combination planting in large pots. I find it works best in part shade since our temps (zone 8a) can get into the high 90's. One plant will make a 12"-16" spread. It is beautul when combinded with coleus, geranuims, or any bright colored flower. Use it in place of Baby's Breath in your flower arrangements. We have found that it last much longer.
