Gardeners' Notes:

I've had this plant 2 years & it is a beautiful plant. However by end of July the tips of the plant [red areas] dry out & turn brown. It is in a mostly shady area; getting indirect sun from 10am - 12pm. I believe it gets enough moisture. I live in Spokane WA Any other suggestions? I paid enough for it that I don't want to throw it out.

I am developing a deep and abiding love for this scrappy beauty. I have had excellent success with it in what I'd call 'dry shade,' as well as in an area I would classify as 'edge of bog.'

MA here.

I planted some of these plants in my garden on the north side of my house. Its a cool looking texture for a groundcover and does best in full shade. In areas where sun shines after lunch it will defoliate the plant into early dormancy come late August in zone 5. Rabbit resistant in my neighborhood. Just in case someone wants to know, its fully roundup resistant.
