I used this plant in a container planting. It started out very nice, but as the summer progressed, the leaves started turning grey and then died. I kept cutting out the dead parts, but I finally had to totally remove the plant from the container.D. Havely, Indiana, United States, 11 years ago
Used in a planter on our deck. Became so full, it took over almost the whole pot. Lovely light green color.Susan Rossman, Ohio, United States, 11 years ago
