I grew Dark Dancer in 2006 (tender perennial for me) in the ground and loved it. I thought the flowers were very similar in color to S. Raspberry Delight (I compared the flowers side by side), which is hardy for me and I've ground for many years in the ground.

I have one coming in the mail. I'll keep it growing in my heated sun room until spring. I'm not expecting more than a plug for what I paid but worth it to give a few a try that will be annuals for me.
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

If you make lots of cuttings and they are easy you will cut the cost per plant. Greggii can make a lot of progress in one year in our area. You should end up with a nice plant. Also, if your soil is well drained don't be surprised if it survives the winter. The key is not to cut it down in the fall.
