good substance can measure more than 1
1/2' wide and long. Strong upright habit,
forming a very tight clump. Pale reddish-violet

Still growingReview by SuzyCreamCheese - Cincinnati, OH Posted on 2012-07-24 09:46:16
Bought 2 of these last year and they are doing very well. Hopefully they will grow faster now that they are established.
so far so goodReview by Marc - College Park, MD Posted on 2012-04-02 10:51:29
Planted last spring....they grew about 6 inches..one of them had been stepped on so much by clumsy friends I thought it was completely dead...amazingly all 4 came back this year and seem to be doing good. Hopefully with this early spring they will take off this year...will update later.
