I just have a few. Planted last year and very vigorous.

Very pretty! Wish they did well here. I tried planting a few here, mulched them deeply, and although they lived for a few years, only one bloomed, and it's the only one still alive, but not thriving. I guess they like acid soil, and lots of water. This is not the best picture, but you get the idea.

I'm impressed with not only their vigor here but everything about the blooms, size, form, color. Black Gamecock is sprawling all over the place while the other two are more upright. If they make it thru to next year I may have to tie up BG to get it to behave.
