An attractive plant, but it did not do well. Planted it in water-logged soil, per nurseryman's instructions, but whether it was too much water, or too hot in a Texas spring heatwave, the plant succumbed after a few days. As it began to fail, I moved it from all-day sun to dappled sun, then transplanted it to a pot with drainage, to no avail.
