Bought this gorgeous plant last Summer out a Home Depot for some shaded gardening I was doing for my Mom, and it was such a standout! It finally started to have some problems around January this year, but I cut back the dead stuff, and it has begun to grow new shoots again. Great color, but did not get any flowers from it. It's in a small sized container that it came in. Have not fertilized it yet, but from the looks of the pH it tolerates, I might try some Nitrogen based organic stuff later in Spring this year.
While this plant is supposed to be hardy, I just can't seem to get mine healthy. I water it more, water it less, less light, more light...it just won't pull through. I can't seem to find any conditions this plant will do well in.
