I am a fan of Jacob's Ladder plants in every variety. This was my third one, and I find this color combination to be very attractive. All have been very hardy and trouble-free in Minnesota.

I don't know about NH, but here in Anchorage Alaska it has survived two crazy winters with temps all over the place. It is in full sun in a raised bed with average soil. Surrounded by Phlox,Iris, Coreopsis that have also done well in this bed.
