Design IdeasSmaller than its predecessors and impossibly bright, this is the consummate accent for Asian-inspired gardens or for shaded landscapes in need of color. Plant as a single specimen in smaller gardens and courtyards, where its color provides a focal point or accent. Use in clusters for a powerful presence in more spacious landscapes. Perfect as a lacy overhang that won't block sunlight to water gardens, pools and fountains. Ideal plant for spas in small urban backyard gardens. May also be planted in pots.
Care Information
Easily grown in average, well drained soil. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering may be reduced once established. Feed with a general purpose fertilizer in spring.
