Why Grow This Plant
The leaves are amazing. They are a delightful shade of green but they hold water in a central area and glisten in the morning dew or after a rain. Worth growing if only for the fairyland they create with their damp leaves.
The flowers are a massive spray and held above the foliage. But, they are chartreuse.
This greenish-yellow is not every gardener's favorite color, and if you like it - you love it but....
In the landscape it can be grown as a single plant or even as an edging.
It makes an excellent container plant and adds season-long foliage interest to containers.
Full sun or part shade. You can put this one almost anywhere except deep shade where it will get floppy.
Hardiness is an easy USDA zone 4, possibly down into 3.
It doesn't like clay soils but it will tolerate them for a few years until it gets a very wet winter.
