Rating for this plant:
This plant is somewhere between a shrub and a perennial in my garden. The stems remain from year to year, and the plant grows bigger and bigger. It responds well being cut back to manageable size.
The foliage is very attractive and not bothered by bugs. The blossoms in the spring are an added bonus.

I like this opinion
