    Design IdeasWith its brilliant coloring, this plant is a bright specimen in partially shaded gardens in need of excitement. Also good against darker backgrounds and for welcome color late in the year when flowering plants are through. A great way to interrupt long runs of dull foliage. Use sparingly when interplanting with other yellow, yellow-green or gray-green plants.
