Gardeners' Notes:

In part shade north-facing garden, this is a bright addition for the early season. Come mid-summer though, it's all done. I cut it back and let its pretty neighbors take the stage. I've found it to be trouble free and hardy enough to grow in pretty poor soil with high sand content.

What a pretty flower! I planted it a month ago and it is growing nicely with lots and lots of new flowers. I've been pretty good about dead-heading, but aside from that, I have done nothing to it, other than give it a dose of fertilizer when I first planted it. It is growing in heavy soil in 2 different places: 1 with mostly shade, the other with mostly sun, they both seem happy.
