I bought this plant and need to find out how to take care of it, but I don't know the name of it. I live in Dallas, Tx.

I tip my hat to you. The ones in that picture are not mine but I do often grow them, I think they're lovely. I should upload my pictures to the database one of these days. They do come in various colours, some bright and some more pastel like the two above.

Sooby, Do they die to the ground in your zone ? They stay evergreen here, but look ratty and don't bloom in the winter. I have one in a pot that is on it's third year.

They die altogether, Carol, they're grown as an annual here. According to Proven Winners they're only hardy to zone 10-11 but I've seen some sites suggest they might be a little hardier than that. Not as hardy as zone 4 though unfortunately.

Ok. Same as many perennials are grown as annuals here.
