Planted several 'plug' size starts in July/August of this season, in humusy/rich soil with supplemental (not irrigated) watering, in nearly full shade (one grouping gets a few hours of mid-day sun, while the others get none). They have grown by leaps and bounds, and even flowered a bit. Will update on how they overwinter.
