Comments about American Meadows Prairie Mallow Candy Girl:
Unfortunately, only one of these survived, but your customer service dept credited me for the lost plants. They were quite small and somewhat flimsy and it appears they are somewhat difficult to get settled in. I will try again with them as they are rather attractive plants
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
