This special selection blooms earlier than any other plant in the Lo & Behold series, extending the season by up to two weeks each summer. Foliage has appealing silvery tones for better drought tolerance and better looks.

I did NOT get the qnty 5 quart size blue chip jr. covered the first time it froze this spring.
Many (maybe more than half) of the leaves turned brittle, died, and fell off.
However, after covering them for the next following 4 spring freezes, they are now producing new leaves (more leaves now than when delivered)
I believe they are all healthy and will survive nicely !
I ordered 6 of the plants, 1 came damaged, but it was still alive. The damaged plant is still smaller, but all 6 are starting to bloom
