I have had this plant in the ground for about a year and a half and it has been slow growing so far. I have it in partial sun.shade and in very well drained soil. I noticed there are pink buds on it now 10/14.
They appear to be flower buds for the upcoming season's bloom.
I will update if it blooms or not. I am in the Piedmont regions of NC in zone 7b/8.

I have to change my review on this plant to neutral. I believe it really needs to be grown in zone 8b south. It survived the winter of 2014-15 but the flower bubs were damaged by the cold. I lost one and put the other one in a pot. The one in the pot is growing slowly and hasn't bloomed yet. I will update this again but I will say I am less than enthused so far.
