I can second Jim's comments.  I got a plant from Jane about 4 or 5 years ago
and grew it in the greenhouse in a 9" pot (eventually).  Last summer, when
it was dormant, I bare-rooted it and got 5 nice independent crowns, which
went into 3 places in the garden, with varying degrees of protection.  The
most protected was in the less-hardy cactus bed, the least protected was the
open garden sand bed.  It hasn't been much of a winter, only going below 10F
once, but the plants are doing great in all locations, with flowers already
in the cactus bed and tiny buds apparent in the other 2 locations. Foliage
is completely unmarked.

It is beautiful.
