Acted as a bud builder in my garden in 2015. It almost died in 2016 from a cold, wet Spring and didn't recover until autumn. Needless to say it didn't bloom last year.

I've had After the Fall since 2014. This is an evergreen that has hung on (barely) in my garden. If we have a very bad winter/spring the plant suffers and won't bloom for a couple of years. The past two winters and springs have been mild and the plant has bloomed. However in my garden it is more of a midseason bloomer than the registered extra early.

This front of the border mini has never rebloomed for me but has bud built. It's a cute little flower but if it finally dies from a bad winter I won't replace it. I don't believe I have a sheltered enough spot where I would feel confident it could survive. I would also think it would not do well potted (too much freeze/thaw). But if you live somewhere with mild winters I think the plant would do quite well.
