    OUTSTANDING PLANT!!! I got this plant last fall and it was the healthiest plant I have EVER ordered online. It had no blooms but healthy leaves and was much more substantial in size than I expected. I put it in the ground and it grew a bit until I mulched it over for the winter. I uncovered it in May and it started growing and blooming like crazy! Three months later it has spread out at least 4′ if not more, in all directions. I actually had to put some stakes in as it was spreading into my rose bushes. It requires hardly any watering or care. The blooms close up at night and reopen in the daytime. No insects eat it, no deer eat it; it is one of the best, easiest plants I’ve ever had and I am typically a plant killer. I am in zone 5, edge of 4, soil is sandy/well draining, 6+ hours of sun. I’m trying to find other places on the property to plant more of these. You will not be disappointed!
