    Design IdeasThe perfect plant for foundations that's large enough for solid color with a bonus of gorgeous flowers. Plant in problem acidic soils beneath canopies of shade trees or even smaller accent trees. Very bright flowers are good attention-getters at focal points with groups of them intensifying this overall effect. Good for edging outdoor living spaces with cooling, rich green foliage and close up appreciation of huge flower trusses. A vital component of a florist's or crafter's landscape when massed to provide plentiful cutting material.
