Schizanthus (Poor Man's Orchid)

Has anyone had success in growing this plant in zone 7? I have never grown this plant, but it caught my eye at my local nursery and just had to try it. Appreciate any feedback on your experience with this plant, esp if you have found it care-free and easy to grow. Thanks.

I've grown it for a couple of years and it does pretty well here but sometimes I think the hazy, hot and humid weather can be too much for it...
