    Taken this morning...
    This is another one I lost to the cold and wet a year or two back, so being more careful with my new replacement this year.

    Don't feel bad; I've killed at least six of these over the years. They do not handle the winter wx for me.

    This one went in the ground around 3 or 4 years ago from a 7-gallon can. Just before last winter it was over three feet tall and lush. After the winter, and all the leaves fell off, I cut it back to 18".

    A great plant that defoliates rather easily. Its original name is Superba.
