    You have to expect a littany of disappointments if you venture to grow this one in the Lower Mainland, especially over the past several years. The hot summer months really take their toil on what is, in any case, a short lived perennial. It occupies a prime position in the coolest part of the garden. Hence, when it flowers, you can bet that there will be a large catalogue of pictures taken of the blooms.
