I quite like Andes Legend but unfortunately it does not like my zone 6 garden. It is barely hanging on after several years. As an evergreen it has difficulty with my late winter-early Spring weather. It is pod and pollen fertile so I'm hoping to get some offspring that look similar but are better suited for my climate.
