The jury is still out on this beauty. I bought four plants last fall, two were placed on the east side, and two were placed on the west side. As of 6/10/06, one of the west wide plants expired this week and the one remaining is only 2-3" high. The east side plants are about 8" high and look healthy but the growth is so slow , it looks like I will have to wait until next year to actually see them from the road. Beautifully colored leaves, but they seem too fragile for a busy garden.
