I wasn't impressed with these perennial snaps during their first season in our garden (after growing from seed in late winter) – but I think they are coming into their own in this second season. Fuller plants with nicer flowers – I hope they keep on going all season! Late to come back in spring, but at least they proved hardy through their first winter.
