I have had Bright Lights growing in my garden now for three years. The leaves of my plant are dull and waxy appearing in spring but the plant brightens up through the summer. It produces pure white flowers that are very lovely along with nice plump seeds that are viable. Slugs and insects don't seem to bother my plant. It will tolerate a little afternoon sun without burning. Overall I find this plant a nice edition to my garden.
