"Very nice! Little hard for me to use in planting beds, the golden color of the flower just didn't blend well with my color scheme so I kept it containerized (monoplanting, low dish) and the publis reacted favorably... lots of questions about it. Who cares if it blooms - foliage makes it worth growing." - Janet Draper, Smithsonian Institution

  • I struggled with this finicky plant for weeks, thought it was dying, turned red, and just looked like a p.o.s. One hot day, while moving my other babies out of the scorching sun, I brought the ever so unsightly zinfandel into the full shade also. And to my surprise, within hours it was reborn! So, as the exposure recommended, part sun to sun, they're wrong. I'd say full to part shade for outdoor summer months. A sunny window indoors during our Michigan winters will do the job.

    Satisfactory Average performance, met expectations but not outstanding.

  • I had this plant last year and it didn;t do so well, but this year it was a prize winner.
    I really wish I can grow it inside but I am afraid it will dry up,due to the lack of humidity in the house during winter.

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • It grew in a difficult place in the yard that gets the eastern sun and gets hot, then cools off in the afternoon and gets very shady.
