I purchased a 4" pot from Bluestone Perennials in May 2011 and planted it by the croquet lawn. It got a little burned in summer. It struggled until it finally died from fertilizer burn in spring 2013. I purchased a 2-gallon replacement from Nurseries Caroliniana in May 2013 and planted it in the Big Trees and Birds garden.
