I am in Western NC. (Hardiness zone 7b). I have planted these 3 times in 2 locations and they have done very well. I like natural settings, so my beds are messy and on the wildish side. I love these charmers. They come back the 2nd year, but not after that.
I sowed the seeds outside early spring in my zone 5b. Checked for germination after 2 weeks and there was nothing and after that I completely forgot about it and then one fine day I am seeing these beauties flowering in between my roses and Echinacea.
TN zone 7a - this plant was nice. It took long time to germinate for me. But granted I do not have best cultural practices. It was a nice plant, It did not wow me and I do think I did not have it to the best of it's advantage visually. But it was pretty, lacy, and short and very well behaved. In the right situation it would be a nice winner. Like in mass in front of evergreens or something. I had low germination rate, got only about 3 plants. They were okay for me. I was not that fond of them. I would try again maybe in a different area.
