WITCH'S WAND did not do well for me. It would look great until spring,
then it would act like it had a disease and fail to grow. After bloom
season it would perk up again. After three years, it finally had one
stalk with 4 (if memory serves) buds. Nice looking, but  hard to get
I planted NIGHT GAME in '97. Didn't bloom last year, and died of rot
in summer. (Does this prove Linda's theory?) BUT - this was a really
nasty summer, and it succumbed after many days of rain. I think it may
have survived if it had been better established.
I have heavy clay soil.
