Great looking semi hardy Brom..slow growing and needs a few hours of sun to color up..and that warmth helps with growth. In shade,it can come to near a full stop in growth in the cool SF bay area summers. Light feeding is appreciated too.
Choice foliage brom..a must have. Watch for slugs and snails!
