With a name like that, I did not know what to expect so I was pleasantly surprised the first time it bloomed.
"Bark at Me" does well in Northern KY and I love the way it twists and curls.
Medium growth rate and looks great as a clump, blooms well above the foliage.
Fertile both ways... reminds me I have some seeds from it I need to start.

Love what you teach and teach what you love!

Bark at Me does well here in zone 6b south central Kentucky. It is not a fast increaser but it is very hardy. The petals droop and curl always giving the impression of motion.
