These started in spring inside from seed. May not be very colorful as once planted outside they got a lot of hot, humid weather which diminishes their color.
This plant has a new sprout in March. It is disappointing to know that the Texas heat is just around the corner and the plant's beauty will be fading soon. (San Antonio, Tx.)
Should have planted this right about now instead of last spring. They really don't like the hot summer weather, but just found that out. This is my only one with color.
This plant is growing sidewaysbut still looks great. The falling sun is giving half of the plant a bit of a golden glow. This photo was taken in early March. (San Antonio, Tx.)
The texture and the colors provide cool weather interest. I just could not help posting a closeup. This photo was taken in early March as the sun was setting. (San Antonio, Tx.)
This plant is approx. 4.5 ft. tall. Nothing special has been done to it-very unusual to me

I alternated 2 purple and one white/green along a 30 foot bed for edging. We use this plant in the winter for color in our zone.
