I've just bought one of these but am wondering where you have yours planted -is it tender, it looks like it, but the sites I've looked at don't say? They look amazing, shame about the 'scent'!

Pixie, it's seems to be hardy it has survived in the garden for 3 years, last winter down to -14.
Mine is planted is the shade on the North side of the cane fence you can see behind it.
The smell doesn't seem to last too long, hope this helps, hope yours grows well! :o)
