I grew this in a container as an annual for 3 years in a row. It came from Ace Hardware of all places. You just never know what you will get from the "Helpful hardware man". I haven't seen it for the last few years though. The bloom changed colors as it aged. It was one remarkable color after the other. I found that this cultivar was particularly sun sensitive. Too much and it burned, not enough and it didn't bloom well. I never did find the optimum spot for it, but it was so beautiful that I kept trying.........Maryl
