Grows like crazy!
by Roo, June 7, 2020

Out in the middle bed of my Zone 6 large yard. Hot, dry, rarely watered. Has been there for 10+ years. Divided for the first time last year, I forgot about it. Never watered it,except rain. Low and behold -it survived and looks great this spring!

Very nice and I think I will have to add more of this plant in the future. I love it! It seems to be doing well by my dry river bed.
