Not as Showy

I bought this for visual impact and specimen. It does tolerate everything that NC winters and summers can throw at it. This is it's 3rd year, it looks most like pics in spring when green with delicate blue flowers. I too never got the brilliant orange/rust/yellow as pictured. One plant is not enough; I would suggest 5 if you are looking for the impact of the pics provided.

I planted this in part sun last year, and it looks pretty good. It did turn gold, but it wasn't as vibrant as this photo and the plant isn't as full and lush. I wonder how many plants are in the picture on the website. Hopefully it'll mature more this year and fill out.
All-Around Winner

This perennial has it all--cool blue flowers in spring; drought tolerance for those hot, dry summer months; and magnificent foliage for spring, summer, and fall. I'm sure I missed something, because there are too many things going for this plant. An all-around winner!
