These 2 plants have been growing in my zone 6a garden for 2 years now and are a great asset. They have steadily held their own being right on the edge of the sidewalk and driveway. The deer have tried to nibble them but with a little protection the first year they have not bothered them again. I found these plants in a markdow bin for $1 each.
