|Design Ideas||With its brilliant coloring, this plant is a bright specimen in partially shaded gardens in need of excitement. Also good against darker backgrounds and for welcome color late in the year when flowering plants are through. A great way to interrupt long runs of dull foliage. Use sparingly when interplanting with other yellow, yellow-green or gray-green plants.|

|Care||Thrives in light, loamy or sandy, well-drained soil with full to part sun, but tolerates a range of conditions including dry shade and poor soil; avoid soggy soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish extensive root system; reduce frequency once established. Apply fertilizer in early spring. Prune annually to shape.|
