    • Bought one of these this past spring to try it out. I will grow this every year now, flowered all spring into mid-summer until we had continuous 100+ degree days with no rain. We did not supplement much water at all. Stopped flowering but stayed green. After summer heat wave relented it started flowering again and is still going strong. I was sure a 27 degree morning about 10 days ago would kill it off, but it didn’t even blink. Looking forward to trying some other colors next year.
