My Experience: 

I purchased a 1-gallon plant from McCorkles in September 2007 and kept it in a pot until planting 'Around The Pool' in summer 2009. It has performed well, blooming reliably each year. It does, however, attract Leptoglossus phyllopus - nasty bugs that buzz you when you go by. I dug it up in autumn 2013 and transplanted one to the Octagonal Perennial Garden. There were many babies but the main plant was a write-off.
