2004 Perennial Plant of the Year from the Perennial Plant Association.
I purchased a 1-gallon plant at Lowes in spring 2007 and 2 at Home Depot in spring 2008. All 3 were planted in the Courtyard in summer 2009. I rearranged them in spring 2011 and kept one plant, potting up and dividing the others for the Pendleton King Plant Swap.
