We built a home in a rural area of NM..Zone 8, desert and cactus are the normal plants..
The Rio Bravo was planted in 100 degrees last Aug..wintered over with remaining semi green....
Watered at least once a week since planting.
The glorious green new growth is coming full force...the color on the blooms was a glorious soft purple..
Planted 3 in a triangle for the "wow" effect.
I believe it is a winner for this area, as once it is established it keeps on blooming all spring/summer and fall..
And it is fast growing.
