Had one that was planted in summer 2011 and died in spring of 2012. My best guess is that I didn't keep it watered enough. From researching this plant, it sounds like in likes damp areas and needs regular watering. But this site says it is "drought tolerant". I liked the look and location it was planted, and am looking for something simliar that might not need as much water. Any suggestions?
