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.
