    Give it a bit more shade to develop those hot pastel pinks. have not seen any this year in the big box stores. A reliable and steady grower and not affected by last two winters.

    Peyton, it will keep better color in deeper shade. I've yet to see a blacked out VGB from too much shade

    Right - Original plant from a 3-gallon. In the ground five years - southwest corner of the garden, afternoon sun.
    Left - Cuttings from that plant from two years ago - east side of the garden, morning sun.
