Sings the Blues performed at the level of an evergreen in the winter garden (9b with six weeks of overnight lows around 28 degrees) but closer to a dormant in the pot (getting my score of "10" for garden and "3" for pot) and rebounded fairly well in spring (scored "8") with only some difficulty with aphids compared to other cultivars. It was an extremely fast multiplier in my garden, more than doubling its fans over the winter. Its bloom color did fade a bit on its FFO day, which was 105 degrees, but otherwise held up amazingly well during the heat wave. Not a lot of blooms, but they quickly stabilized and looked true to form. I was not able to get seed from pod or pollen this summer. Now that it has been through two weeks of below freezing temps this winter, it is doing better than expected for a semi-evergreen (scoring "8") so it does have resiliency.
