Gardeners' Notes:

Beautiful plants that can be part of a moonlight garden, on a night when there is moonlight, the white leaves almost appear to glow. I have 2 bushes that get dappled morning and some afternoon shade that are planted on the west side of my house. Haven't had to bring them through a cold snap yet, but hopefully Florida won't have the unusually cold winters we have had for the past 2 years.

I lost two eight foot tall plants during the extended cold spell this winter in south Florida. They were gorgeous showy things with unmatched displays. I hoped they might come back from the roots or old wood, but no such luck. Breaks my heart.
