Seems to grow well in front of our house on the south side but I have not been able to get it to grow anywhere else. Also it needs a focus all of it's own. Not a color mix that goes with most things or it loses the beauty it has. Love the purple edging even in the standards which stands out some years really clearly. Had mine for years, since the 1980's and it multiplies quite fast in the spot where we have it.
