They are slow to establish, but once they have settled in, their arching mounds of soft leaves cascade richly like a waterfall. There are several variegations to enhance the shade border. 'Beni-Kaze' has graceful green foliage with red tips in summer, then turning completely red-purple as the weather cools. Very showy. Morning sun at most, Best success with ample moisture.
