This was new in my garden this year. It got a little stressed during that hot, dry spell, but it's doing really good now. Sent up new growth. I really like this one too. I like getting this kind of substance in a mini. Hope the mature plant turns out as well as I'm thinking it will.

2014. Only the 3rd year in my garden, but I must say that I'm not thrilled by this one unless it does a turn around. It IS still in a pot, but it's really leggy. Does this variety ever fill out? Photo Aug. 9.
