I wish this particular plant was better named, as I have hunted it down for years, never being able to pin down the exact one. So, after getting the wrong one for Christmas, I went and dug up part of one nearby in a field. I live in Zone 9b, I believe, and it is doing even better than the one from the nursery! It also is very beautiful.
