    Design IdeasThis moderately large mound of golden blue foliage is a perfect accent among darker foliage plants. Works well filling space between flowering shrubs or among Fern.

    Care Information
    Provide enriched, slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. For a tidy appearance, remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge.
