I was amazed that this plant remained evergreen after a couple of nights of temperatures in the teens. I like the fuzzy foliage and the flowers are an added bonus. It also seems very drought and heat tolerant. I've only had the plant for several months but it's definitely a keeper in my garden. I have one plant growing in dappled shade under a large Eastern Red Cedar.
