This is one very determined little plant! I mistakenly planted it in a spot that ended up being shaded by a schrub, but it poked out and bloomed like crazy anyway. The dog dug around under the schrub and broke it off in several places and it kept growing and blooming....but I took the stems that were broken and stuck them into the soil in a new bed with full sun and all but one came up the same season and ARE NOW BLOOMING!!! Unbelievable!!!
