These were growing really well in the parking strip in front of my house (Seattle, WA) but the unusually cold winter we just had completely killed one, and the other looks terrible, but is now starting to show signs of new life near the core. The extremities were all killed by the cold.

A beautiful plant with pretty flowers and foliage when it's doing well.
