I received this plant about 5-6 years ago and used it as an annual at my home in Ontario, Canada. I winter in Florida so I dug the plant up and replanted it there for the winter. Since then I've been either digging the plant up or taking cuttings back and forth from Florida to Canada and the plants are healthy and in full bloom year round.

It's an annual here in Minnesota, but I grow them every year. I love them for my patio and deck planters. They are gorgeous plants for shade and bloom all summer long. Even when I've forgotten to water them a few times, they bounced right back once I did. They stay showy and are one of my favorites for the planters.
