I purchased a 1 gallon plant from Nurseries Caroliniana in April 2010 and planted it in the Blue Bird Perennials garden. It seemed to do well for a while and had good red winter color. But in the spring the leaves did not go back to their usual state and half of the plant was dead wood. I cut it out and it then struggled for the next two summers. In autumn 2012 I moved it to the Octagonal Perennial Garden.
