I grew this plant in 2002 and 2003 in Virginia (zone 7) and it was beautiful. With regular deadheading (remove whole cluster when it's mostly spent) it will bloom the entire season! Supposed to be mildew resistant, but adequate spacing is still VERY important for plant health. Give them some room for good air circulation, deadhead them, and they will likely be gorgeous little performers for you!
