    This has been one of the toughest plants in my garden. I got two plants from the clearance rack last year and I thought planting them in the early/mid Summer would be the death of them but they survived and thrived with very little care from me. I was afraid they wouldn't thrive in my clay soil but I added lots of rocks and mulched the area with mulch and watered them every once in awhile during Summer and they did well. They're in a xeric, neglected part of my garden.
