I had to share this as Emma gave me a start of this at the plant sale in Jacksonville a year ago
this is the purple one, it survived the summer and sun and it is still going like gang busters and loaded with blooms.
DH has made sure it is given water when things were dry as he thinks it is pretty special since it survived, so I've taken some cuttings to root so I will have it again next summer too Smiling

the white one didn't grow as much so I potted it back up and put it in the green house and it is now blooming

Well I already potted up the cuttings they rooted in a weeks time and just took a few more since they were calling for mid 30's the other night so I have a couple of starts if yours doesn't come back.

I appreciate that! I'll wait until spring to see what survived the drought, tho. We had a couple of cold nights this week. Time to start thinking about putting up our temporary greenhouses again.

Did you notice I "starred" your offer above so I could find it in the spring?! Thumbs up

Go to your Profile and scroll down to "some info about canadanna." It'll show your starred pages. Of course, you'll have to star something first! I love it.

I have one planted on Maya's grave in the Memory Garden. So far it has come back for me although last year by fall it was only about a foot tall. This year it grew way over my head and bad LOTS of blooms every day all summer. I always take cuttings as I love it. Lovey dubby purple is my color
