    I bought Wisest of Wizards from Maryotts out in California many years ago and Wisest of Wizards has done very well in my Long Island, New York garden. Such a pretty flower.

    This one went dormant for me during the summer when it was hot and I didn't water, but then came back again after rain and cooler temps in the 80s/90s.
