This was first introduced to my yard in a 3 inch pot, purchased from young's nursery in Connecticut, transplanted in mid to late spring . In about 3 weeks I had a plant three times that size. In six weeks it was 17 inches across. I could fill an entire yard with this lovely foliage and be completely happy. It is pleasant to look at & completely hardy, slow growing so its easy to maintain but not so slow you'll forget its there. it will tolerate some damage as well. Im surprised I have not seen this sold as a "stepables" plant. I have heavy clay soil but amended with some gypsum, rock phosphate and peat I think the clay is heavily dominant and this little wonder plant remains healthy and thriving. I do not know how it will over winter here in new haven ct I plan to bring a small portion inside just incase it dies back completely. all told this is a great surprise to me in my garden. I feel very lucky to have found this plant.
