Bought two from local nursery, reasonable cost. Put in a Southern exposure, foundation. First year, they "slept." Came through harsh Virginia winter like champs-dealt with temp and moisture swings, also the wind.
Last year, moderate show of liking their new home. Winter showed two pretty, elegant blue shrubs.
This Spring, they have put on about 2" new growth in tidy shape.
Blue color, tidy shape, low maintenance, end height of about 3', winter show, pretty contrast to other foundation plants, and affordable - what else could you ask for? I love them!
