Dear Peter and all,

	It sounds like you have been going this potted. I am curious how it behaves in the ground. I haven’t looked at the roots, but this is what made me think it might be hardy in the ground. And from Uli’s description.

	Interesting looking plants and lots of small, but bright pink flowers.

	Has anyone tried it in the ground?		Best and thanks. 		Jim W.
