Got 20 of these off the clearance rack at Lowes last fall and wow, they have not disappointed. They had tons of beautiful flowers through the fall. Their icy blue foilage never died back through the winter and they were one of the first plants to start blooming this spring. So very happy with this plant.

This is very hardy on the northeastern plains of Colorado. We have cold winters and hot summers with little moisture. It is a consistent steady bloomer. I use it in pots as well as in my flower garden.Dianne Cox, Colorado, United States, 3 years ago
