I ordered this plant last year. I'm pretty sure they listed it for zone 4, as I usually order only things I think are likely to survive. This one did overwinter with no protection and made good growth this year. I don't recall that it bloomed in the spring, but it's blooming now - early November. A nice neat little shrub.

'Somerset' was one of the two original seedlings developed when Mr. Burkwood crossed D. caucasica with D. cneorum. Little did he know how many other cultivars were to follow. This one is pink-flowered with grey-green semi-deciduous foliage.
