Dear Lauw;
	Back home and read your note. Now the flowers are passed and 
the foliage has extended to about five inches in length with broad 
ends and distinct points. At flowering the leaves were under 1 inch 
and very triangular.
Does this fit your # 2 ( for bloom time) or #3 for leaf shape at bloom?  BOTH ?

	I'll leave it out until cold cuts it back, but wonder still 
about hardiness?

		Thanks.		Jim W.
