Wow, very nice! I've seen it in zone 8a Alabama, but he hasn't got a bloom yet in several years of growing it. That's pretty cool! Amazing how cold-hardy it is, considering where it comes from. When did it start growing this spring, Chris?

Hey ya frank

This is it's second year and I got it a swap from a guy in Winston Salem which is a solid zone 7. It comes up about 1 month later than Basjoo. Maybe we could trade next spring
