|I had this plant several years ago but it died after about 3 years. A couple of years ago a found some seed from the original plant and one of my seedlings started to bloom this year.|

|I bought a 'Pink Swirl' on sale last fall and kept it in a container but it died over winter. It was "cold" for zone 7, and even though it never got below 5F, the roots froze in the container. |
I got another one from Santa Rosa this spring, and I was surprised to see it bloom this year, even during a very dry summer. It's planted in the ground now so the roots will be protected this winter.

|I have had a Pink Swirl for 3 years now. I have had it in a pot until about a month ago when I planted it in a raised bed. It was a great bloomer in the spring and early summer until the temps rose. It would then look scraggly and would completely die back for a few months. In early spring it would send up new green shoots and bloom. I wasn't really expecting it to bounce back when planting it in the raised bed. It is so happy now! New green leaves and looks like a brand new plant!|
