Very pretty plant, and I am delighted that it survived our harsh zone 3 winter. This plant likes full sun and goes nicely in the company of ornamental grass, daylily, or coreopsis.

This little beauty snuck into my cart off the clearance shelf last summer. I planted 3 and all survived the winter and have been blooming over a month. It's mid June and they are still giving good color. The stems are a rosy purple and look good even when the blooms are spent. They receive a low amount of water and 6-7 hours of direct sun.
