This was a good plant for me, but it died in the Icepocalypse of early 2014, even though it only got down to 20 here. So I'm not sure I trust the 10 that Dave's Garden says. Then again, mine was in a small clay pot, not in the ground. I'm not gonna give it a negative rating just because it died for me in the winter, as most other people on here like to do.

Love it! First time growing it last year and it won't be the last. Got 2 plants of it at local Lowe's store. I'm hoping I can get it to survive the Winter and come up in 2007. Beautiful red color, not like the 'orangey' red it looks in 2 of my photos (the morning sun was shining on them).
