I have tried this plant for two years. I have planted it in two containers on each side of my back steps that face the west. I live in zone 5b. The one that is in more sun is drooping & the leaves are faded, washed out looking. The other looks fine. I think the label should be changed to pt shade/shade. I thought maybe I received a inferior plant last year and was willing to try it again. I got the same results...very disappointing.Bari Newcombe, 8 years ago
