This plant is doing well in a shady area of my Japanese garden. The foliage is very dark green, soft with a slight shine, and it has settled in well to my zone 6, southern sloping limestone hillside with sharp drainage. It is hard to find plants to grow well in these conditions, but this first year it has done very well.
