I just planted this Origami variety this year & the sales person did not know if it would be winter hardy - is yours? I am in zone 6b.

They self-seed, but yes my is hardy. I have several varieties (as does my neighbor) and some of my plants are 4-5 years old. They have gotten quite large. I have not uploaded all of my pictures yet. These flowers are edible too, just like nastersium and bee balm.

Oh great! I had only had the wild ones previously and added three garden varieties this spring. Thanks!
