Very strange. I suspect the plant is just too new to most of your retailers. It is very well adapted to both your cold and heat zones. Don't prune the plants after mid summer as cutting away growth in fall or winter can cut away bloom wood. Hopefully with time and your good care those plants should settle down and start blooming right next summer. I have seen various plants take time to establish and then begin to act "normal".
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
