I grow this on the North side of the house in Minnesota. These plants are absolutely beautiful. They provide a nice pop of color among my hostas and shrubs.

I really enjoy this plant. It blooms for a long time and the colour is so rich. The leaves stay low to the ground and has spread to about 20"x15" in 3 years time.
