I have tried to get these to grow in my own garden but they never really make it through the winter.

About the only thing I like about living in New Jersey is the mild weather resulting in an incredibly long growing season. I have flowers in my garden from the end of February right through Thanksgiving. A huge change for me from upstate New York where I grew up and where the first frost is in September and it is not unusual for it to snow in May.

I have these in my zone 4 garden, and they do great! I love them, 'cause they bloom from mid-June until mid-September and they have a wonderfully spicy fragrance. I take care to deadhead (almost every day), so I'm not sure if that is what causes the continuing bloom ...

Mia, I had no idea they could bloom that long. I will try deadheading them this year. Thanks for the tip!
