Great Tough Plant Review by Mary | Zone: 8b
This is a great, tough plant. I was looking for a plant that stayed green in the winter because to see nothing in my beds in the winter was so depressing. After two pretty cold winters (for Texas) they stayed green so I am putting them all the way across the one of my garden beds that goes all the way across my back yard. They are easy to care for in the summer also. We actually like the way the leaves smell and the blooms are a vibrant pink. (Posted on 4/19/2011)

Awesome! Review by Debbie | Zone: 8
I have 2 of these and they are awesome! They are truly evergreen and are already full of pink blooms and it's just March. I plan on buying more to spread around in different areas of the gardens. (Posted on 3/11/2009)
