purchased this plant yesterday, it is beautiful, nice folage, looks to have already bloomed so I cut it back in hopes that it will bloom again

planted 6 of these 2 years ago, in sun, good soil. 3 of them have died and the others are less than a foot big. The nearby 'dazzler' is three feet across and 'wisley pink' is 4 feet across. I dont know what 'annabel ' wants; I thought they were in a choice spot for sunrose.
