Love this plant. We have mild winters so it is a short lived perennial here. It is perfect for brightening up areas that are in dappled shade. I have it planted throughout the garden where it adds zing all throughout the year. It is also handsome when the stems are cut and placed in flower arrangements -just the chartreuse foliage -and proves the point that for year-round garden color, foliage that has interesting color like this plant is ideal.

Here in New England, this is a good plant for containers and seasonal bedding.

In California, it's naturalized. CAL-IPC has listed it as invasive of natural habitat, and is urging gardeners to grow something else in its place.
