    • Bought three last year and used in a mixed table centrepiece as well as in the garden. They performed wonderfully! Best part was this spring after the horribly cold winter (-27C freezing and melting and snowing then raining), they are back and growing great!

    • Had three small plants last year. This they reappeared all over my yard. Extremely invasive. Plant only where you can let them spread.

      Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.
    • I love this plant and it grow well, but NOT deer resistant. Every time it has a bit of foliage, the deer come and decimate it! It seems to always bounce back, but the deer won't leave it alone.

      Marginally Adequate Performed below expectations but may be willing to try again.
    • I was enamored by this plant. It is absolutely stunning...in the garden center. I bought 8, and 6 died. Proven Winners was very upstanding and replaced them....but all of them continued to go downhill. None made it through the winter despite very purposeful coddling. -Experienced horticulturist

      Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
