Given loads of water and lots of sun, you have perfect conditions and it will continuously reproduce. On Apr 27, 2007, Lhouselover from Arley, AL (Zone 7a) wrote: I have both the green and the darker foliage and love both of them.

They have done so well that they have been multiplying each year and have started to creep into other areas of my back yard.

On really hot days, the blooms will wilt some, but the plants don't seem to mind otherwise.

Mine seem to have adjusted to the dry conditions I have.

While I do water them more than my other plants, they've certainly gone bone dry more than once!

This is the second summer I've had them and I'm having to really thin them out.

Definately a survivor and a beautiful treat for the eyes!

I grow them in a flower bed about 12 inches from my foundation on the south side of my house.

They usually sprout from the ground in March and by July they are about 6 feet tall.

I'll probably divide them in the fall to share with other parts of the yard. They provide a nice privacy screen when they're full grown.
