I live in Richmond, CA. I got this plant at Berkeley Horticulture. It's a very easy plant, always looks great and blooms like crazy. I have it in full sun. I had too much peach and orange in my garden and was looking for some blues and purples. It's a beautiful little plant, very cheery. It's written that it can survive the winter in my zone, I hope so. it is really pretty. Great for edging in the front of the bed as it doesn't grow too tall.
