You're welcome, Sean. Smiling

It is a fantastic plant! It's consistently hardy here in zone 5b or 6...one of the very few that I've found so far. Pollinators love it, and its compact form would be absolutely stunning en masse. I hope to add several additional plants this year. I need to get started on that pretty soon!
