Pleased
Reviewed By: Emmy Regnier (Buena Vista, CO)
I ordered these last year. At first I did not think they were going to grow, but this year, are just beautiful. So even if they look like they are dead, still water them, and you will be surprised.

Plant in full sun & ignore
Reviewed By: Victoria (Albuquerque, NM)
These plants thrive in full sun, poor clay soil with rare watering. I do nothing except butcher them in spring back to prctically nothing, and they regrow to intense splendor by summer. If conditions are 'right' they can become invasive. In partial shade I have had no success with them. Mulch with gravel, plant near driveway & street, and enjoy :)

Fabulous!
Reviewed By: Gretchen (Corning, NY)
I ordered three of these from Gurney's last spring, and three from another company. The three from Gurney's grew about two feet over the summer and bloomed continuously (the bees love them). The three from the 'other' company all died. Also, the ones from Gurney's were much larger when they first arrived.

Heat tolerant
Reviewed By: Deb (Norfolk, VA)
I ordered these from Gurney's this spring. My front yard is very hot & sunny and they took it like champs. Long lasting bloom (Oct 1 and they are just now beginning to fade). They don't need much watering and do almost as well in partial shade. Highly recommended if you need a reliable heat and dought tolerant plant.

Beautiful!

I ordered this plant over 5 years ago from Gurney's. It's now my favorite plant in the whole garden. Such a stunning color - it really stands out. I highly recommend it.
