My son has Bandit Man in his garden. It thrives, despite the lack of care it receives. It blooms most of July here with little to no water and weeds snuggling up to it. I was not able to do weeding last year due to health issues. Warning: The following image is a hot mess. Smiling

I received 4-fans a year ago (Sept. 26, 2015) and they were potted up. The next month (October 2015) they were transplanted into a new raised bed. As of today, there is still only 4 fans. It has yet to bloom for me. The leaves are slender, short, and so far it is making a nice, compact clump. I hope to see blooms next year.
