Wanting to bring it with me to our new house, I took some cuttings from it. I kept them in containers over the winter of 2008/2009, during which time all but one seemed to have died. So in February of 2009, I put that little sprout in the ground. (Sorry, you can barely see it in this photo)
It apparently likes where I planted it (the border we put in along the back wall, where it gets some dappled shade from the pine tree) because by June 2009, it was a foot high and BLOOMING!
This is it a year later...
Others that I planted at the same time, in different corners of the garden, are still tiny, so this is obviously the magic spot!
