Positive ms_greenjeans On May 28, 2010, ms_greenjeans from Hopkins, MN (Zone 4a) wrote:

Tango blooms heavily in early summer and will then bloom sporadically through the rest of the summer. They grow fairly low, so sometimes I prop up the branches to get them off the ground. I like the foliage and flower color and their small size. They don't seem to have any pest or disease issues, but there is a little bit of die-back in our zone 4a winters.

Neutral Todd_Boland On Nov 21, 2004, Todd_Boland from St. John's, NL (Zone 5b) wrote:

'Tango' is one of a group of new, mostly dwarf cultivars, developed in Canada. They are called the 'Canadian Dance Series' (includes the cultivars 'Minuet', 'Rumba' and 'Samba'). 'Tango' is quite hardy (zone 4) with purplish-brown foliage and an abundance of purplish-pink flowers. Plants are compact, rarely exceeding 3 feet. This cultivar is readily available in my area.
