I have had this plant for 4 seasons. It's in two bunches. I don't have any recent photos - I know the deer enjoyed it last season.

I like the look of that one, Ed. I have a couple Amber Tiaras and by mid-summer, they simply disappear. What am I doing wrong with them? I'd be really surprised if they returned this spring, but I am hopeful. It doesn't appear that rabbits are getting to them, they just die back. <shrug> And this has happened several years in a row, not just due to the drought/heat of 2012.

I suppose I ought to move them elsewhere and see what happens. There is some bamboo in the area that I plan to rip out this spring. Wish me luck, there. It's gone crazy...
