I grew four of these from seed this spring. We are having, here in Toronto (Zone 5/6) a long summer, and I sowed the seeds indoors under lights early, so two of the plants are in bloom. One is located in semi-shade and the other in semi-sun. The one not in bloom is in full sun. And the fourth has died, likely because it was being shaded in the extreme by some very zealous Callicarpa!
They're in Triple mix, in planters.
A very pretty little plant.
