I purchased this plant b/c it was said to bloom well in part shade. In the shade, this plant grew as directed on the label; however, in full sun, this plan grew to 6 feet for me....and was covered with beautiful blooms. A pleasant surprise, but had to move many of them to the back of the border (instead of the middle where they were originally planted.)
