I've had the yellow shrimp plant now for about 2 years and, although it was slow to start bushing out (and doesn't seem to have received direct frost although it has survived frosty nights), it seems to be similarly tough. So those are two tough plants.
I hope that I'll eventually have a bed of them; it would help if I hadn't trampled them when transforming the buddleja bed into an oleander bed! But I do remember Judy posting a photo of her shrimp plants, a lovely large bed of mixed colours. If anyone is willing to trawl thru her posts they could probably find it.
