I got one half off at the garden center last year. I didn't know a thing about it and it had already bloomed but the woman who worked there conviced me it was low maintence and I would love it. She was right. It is now a small bush and sends up bracts with tiny red flowers in the spring. Other than cutting off the dead bracts I haven't done a thing and it looks great - nice and round and green!
