Have had had this plant in the ground for three years on the NE side of the house. For some inexplicable reason, it has over-wintered and come back, despite my being in borderline Zone 8a/8b. Haven't done anything special to help it, and we have had mid-20 degree nights several times. Only thing I can think of is that they get covered with leaves in the Fall, which must be enought protection. A real winner!

I have this plant growing in a pot in my covered entryway where it gets just a little sun for part of the day. It has been in bloom since I planted it last spring in spite of running dry for days, only occasional, rare feedings, spending several days inside while away for Christmas, and general neglect. What an amazing plant!
