I have winter sown this plant two yrs in a row, the one last year, did survive the winter. We shall see if they both survive this year, if so, they are hardy to zone5.

**adding comment 10.22.10**

It seems mine are not as deep of a pink as other images I have seen. Mine are much more pale. I have 2 clumps now .... I'll keep watching them to see if it ever changes.

** Still surviving in zone5. I have one unprotected out in a field - doing just fine. Another near the house where it is more protected.

My 'Pink Pop' is a perennial in my garden. I was very excited to see it come back up, and I really like the sweeter scent of the leaves.

This plant is perennial in my garden, unless there are two "Pink Pop" hybrids. The foliage has a spicy scent, not as sweet as the A. aurantiaca hybrids.
