planted this fall in a sunny bed, good soil, no supplemental water. They just started blooming in June and are very pretty--large, and with subtle coloring. They look great mixed with the blue love in a mist.

I just ordered this and they say the zone range is 5-9. I sure hope so!

UPDATE: While these came up and bloomed in the spring of 2006, they did not return in 2007. :-(
