Overwintered this plant in the ground here in SW Pennsylvania with great success.
It came back stronger than ever. It's beautiful plant that adds a tropical look to a landscape. It's easy to care for and I definitely recommend it to anybody!

I HAD to have this plant after seeing at a local Hotel down in VA Beach. Absolutely stunning. The leaves by itself without any bloom are beautiful. Mine is still about three feet tall and I can't wait till next summer to see it bloom. Really nice tropical looking plant for zone 8.
