I think the Night Heron represents the apex of garden design, in that the *placement* and *pairing* of this plant in its surrounds will either raise the delicacy to a high art form or not. I purchased this plant in spring, but *after* it's spring show of rich mauve new growth and dainty chartreuse flowers; all show stoppers I'm sure. For summer and fall I actually forgot about this new addition; that is the truth; and a warning to me that when spring does come again, I really need to have put my thinking cap on as to where this Night Heron can earn it's keep!!
