I received CASTLE PINKNEY as a gift plant from the Shooters a few years ago, and it really hasn't grown much for me over the years. I really like the pink color, and it does bloom every year -- but I think that because it's a dormant it doesn't do as well here in our hot climate as it would in a cooler environment. But it's still here in my garden, which really says something as I've been giving away lots of plants to make room for the newbies!
