RE: knockout

I have been growing knockout for six years now, and I would call me results 
semi-successful.  I actually have three divisions in one area and a single 
plant in another area.

The single division and the three plant clump both get quite a bit of 
sunlight.  However, the single plant is in an area where it gets no morning 
sun, but quite a bit of noontime sun.  This plant has been a slow, slow 
grower but never had any browning at the edges.

My three plant clump gets quite a bit of morning sun, has a small amount of 
edge burn each year, and has grown slow, albeit somewhat faster than the 
other location.

I guess to sum this up, I would recommend a fair amount of sun to promote 
growth.  This spring, since the clumps are getting large enough I plan to 
move them to a "high shade" area to see if I can obtain a better looking 

I amend my soil heavily with cow manure.  Other than that I would suggest 
many years of patient waiting.

Hope this helps.

Does anyone have success growing Knockout? mine just sit there and
refuse to budge. The where's and how's you grow them would be
appreciated, and how come the plant sold doesn't match the registered
description? I know the plant will grow as mine came from a huge clump
that David Reath dug for me.Waz up wid dat?!
