"Very nice! Little hard for me to use in planting beds, the golden color of the flower just didn't blend well with my color scheme so I kept it containerized (monoplanting, low dish) and the publis reacted favorably... lots of questions about it. Who cares if it blooms - foliage makes it worth growing." - Janet Draper, Smithsonian Institution
