I have had this plant for over 5 years. I love the pink-tinged new spring growth. Over time, the pink fades to just variegation. The yellow flowers are nice, but I grow it for the foliage. Mine spreads, but not aggressively (NOTHING like the gooseneck loosestrife...it spreads like you would want a perennial to. I can share some from time to time. be sure to pull out any all-green shoots to prevent it from losing it's variegation.

I added this plant to a shady spot in my backyard, where it's hard to add something with colour. It looks fantastic! I just went a bought a couple more today to plant around a tree. I'm so pleased with it!

Plant performed well with little attention in Zone 4. Very attractive foliage stayed bright all season - yellow flowers come and go - I have not had a problem with invasiveness. Nice contrasting plant in mixed and perennial beds.
