This is a beautiful cultivar but sadly has not preformed well here in zone 8. I planted it exactly like the 'Shi Ho' and 'Koyame' but it grew very slowly and did not bloom much. It also did not return the following year. The other aforementioned cultivars grew and flowered profusely. I.m not really sure why but after trying 'Momobana' several times now I think I'll wait fro a better pink flowering woodland sage.
