I have an attraction to Dr. Seuss plants, and this one qualifies. It's a Gumby plant, too. I'm having fun with it, I keep resculpting it. It's very slender and graceful and probably wishes I would leave it alone. I put it smack in the front of my perennial border. People either love it or raise their eyebrows at it.
