Has anyone grown this? It looks interesting. I saw it on the web site for Accents for the Home and Garden. I wonder how it would winter inside up here in the north? Has anyone tried? Thanks for any info!

I got mine from Taylor's and Kartuz. They are in the greenhouse for the winter.

They are wonderful in the landscape if you can grow them that way. In S.F. they were several feet tall.

Great picture. I definitely will put that on the list.
DB.. did Taylor's ever answer your question on whether or not they carry other varieties on site that they don't carry in the catalog? I asked them the same question in an email I sent asking if I could add to my order but haven't heard from them yet. Trying to figure out if it's worth a drive there this spring or summer.

Deborah said she would be adding to the site over the next 2 months. She says that every year. Last year her husband gave me a list of things that they had and said some were in such short supply that they don't list them on line. To me, that means she has more stuff in the greenhouse. And, she has larger plants in the greenhouse than she sells on line. I would definitely go visit if I were closer.

Looks like a road trip is in order.
