I have wanted to grow this plant so badly, but three separate times I have tried it, and the plants have died of a fungal rot on their stems before they even get out of the 1gal size pots I had them in. I read on some sites that this is not a very vigorous selection, and from my experience, I'd have to agree (other selections do fine in my garden). But I may try it one more time just for the beautiful foliage.
