I purchased 3 liners from Bluestone Perennials in May 2011 and potted them up. They took a long time to grow enough to plant out and before then, 1 died. I planted the other two in the Helipad Tiers Garden where one is slowly making a reasonable clump and the other has disappeared. The other clump disappeared in winter 2013.
