I love the architectural quality of this plant, provides nice structure to the garden. Pretty, plentiful, lightly fragrant, yellow bell-shaped flowers all winter. Leaves are attractive dark-green color, but beware - stiff leaves have sharply pointed tips, so can be used to keep unwanted traffic out of the area. Slow to moderate growth rate. Requires mostly shade here in Dallas. Highly recommended, many reasons to love this unusual plant.
