    • I over wintered this in our cold frame with hopes of it to be used as a cut flower. Looking forward to seeing the blooms it provides. Looks great for 6a zone Feb 1st!

    • I am in zone 5, mid-Hudson Valley, probably 5b since I am near the Hudson River, which will keep us a bit warmer when it isn't frozen over. I found this plant in Lowes and it was different. The initial flowers faded and when the second set of flowers started to bloom, the local wild life ate them. I mulched a lot of my perennials last fall and this one made it. It has about a dozen flower spikes. I wish I could include a photo. I am spraying with deer/rabbit repellent with hopes of enjoying the blooms. I will do a tour of the local business to see if I can find one with a different color to add to the collection.
