I grew this for several years in a zone 6A rose garden where it took blazing summer heat and limited water with basically no care at all, not to mention great piles of snow in the winter. It performed remarkably well and was a lovely backdrop for roses and German bearded iris. I'll definitely be planting it in my new Oklahoma zone 7B garden. A wonderful plant for a natural effect.

My 'White Festival' actually bears flowers that appear pink rather than white. It blooms again if cut back after the first bloom.
