Comments: Has dark green leathery foliage that turns shiny red winter. Plants can be dug, divided and planted in the spring or fall. It makes a great groundcover when planted in large groups, or it is also a nice contrast to fine textured bedding plants. Will grow in sunny areas, but grows best in partial shade. Plant in well-drained soil, but be aware that dry ones tend to stunt growth.
