I've seen this described as a small shrubby plant, but thus far it has behaved as a herbaceous perennial in our garden. Our first plants are now a few years old, and have finally developed a reasonably full habit - approaching the wonderfully massed flowers I've seen on online photos. It sure has a great presence in our rock garden!

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
