Gardeners' Notes:

I have had this plant in my zone 6a garden for about 5 years. It is lovely and unique. It is also thriving and grows almost a foot a year. It is nearly 6 feet tall now. I know the hardiness zone says 7 but mine is in a rather exposed west location with no protection and it is doing just fine.
