All these plants were planted in June 2006. They are growing like weeds. If anyone wants plants for zone 3-8 that give your money's worth try Lamb's Ears (silver carpet) and Monarda (bee balm) that both flower into the fall.
I bought them in 6" pots and a year later I have huge clumps that I can divide in the fall. Both will tolerate some shade. The Rugossa rose bush (needs no winter covering) , very rugged and flowers until fall is 3x the size and the Silver Lace vine was cut back to 4" tall in May. I am so pleased with the results so far. :)
The Silver Mound did not do as well :( but is growing in wisps. The Ligularia may be getting too much sun also.
