From Petersburg, Virginia, Zone 7A: I bought a small (4 X 4-inch square pot, about 6 inches deep) but strongly rooted specimen of Gartendirektor Otto Linne last April (2011) and planted him before the end of the summer, probably in June. In April of 2012, he has grown considerably, probably at least two-foot branches, and is covered with healthy green leaves and many pink flower buds. He probably appreciates the horse manure I added to his planting hole.
