Gardeners' Notes:

I live in Dallas, where it's hard to grow unusual plants that are both lush and heat-hardy. For two years, 'Annemieke' has been growing under my large live oak tree, in complete shade. It's been a slow grower, but even its older leaves have remained healthy and shiny as it grows more and more bushy. I plan to plant several more as soon as I find a source: our best nurseries here only stock a few of these at a time!

So far, very positive. Lovely foliage, particularly nice because with its upright growth habit, it stands out. Mine has survived 26 degrees Celsius, with some wind, on the north side of my home with no damage. There seems to be alot of disagreement as to exactly how hardy the plant is--some references say zone 8, some zone 7. One reference stated that new growth would die with anything below 25 degrees, old growth in the teens, but the plant itself would survive and resprout even down to 10 degrees.
