Design IdeasThis may be the most vivid source of fiery foliage color in partially shaded gardens. This forest floor dweller is at home in natural woodland gardens or in those with an Asian theme. A great solution for the often acidic soil conditions around conifers. Bright foliage color and charming flowers makes it a suitable accent plant for condo and town-house patios, city gardens and courtyards. Valuable foundation plant on north and eastern exposures. Once matured, it can be used as a side-yard privacy screen.
