From Siberia. The photo at right shows first-year plants, taken in July after setting outside in May. At left, the single survivor is starting to bloom in late May. By mid-June (photo at right), it's mostly done - and I must admit, it never looked all that great in the interim. More of a curiosity than anything.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
