excellent for southern gardens

This is a beauty as a hedge or a small grouping - mine are growing behind some varigated sheffelera in my Florida garden. This makes the varigation really pop They are so easy - need moist sunny place to do their best - really do love the contrast.
Not sure it's a dwarf

This plant looks like the picture when it first bloomed. Then a few weeks later it started growing again and is no longer what I would consider "Dwarf size". Description says 16-18" tall. Currently I stand 5'7" and this plant is up to my shoulders already. I don't know if this plant just likes my ground...or it's only considered a dwarf in Godzilla's garden. Perhaps it's grown so tall as a result of weekly Miracle Grow waterings. Whichever the case may be...if you need it to be dwarf-sized, don't be surprised if it grows to 60" or taller.

But otherwise, I'm VERY happy with this plant. I'm so glad I bought it.
