i got this from plant delight's 2 years ago. while it is a cool/unique looking plant/ground cover, it is somewhat of a bully.even Tony's web site says don't plant it near any delicate treasures or they'll be swallowed up. that said, i've managed to keep it in check by digging down, breaking the 'mother vein' connection and pulling outer plants.

mine get early and late afternoon sun here in zone 8a, otherwise they fry. it's definitely a conversation piece.
