I dragged this monster out of the greenhouse today. I love love LOVE this plant! I'm not sure how well it'll grow when I plant it outside, but It's going to be too big for the greenhouse next winter.

Location: We are less than one hour south of downtown Houston. We are located in Wild Peach, Texas located half way between Brazoria and West Columbia. Exit hwy 36 onto County Road 354. Take County Road 353 west . Go approximately 2.4 miles. We are on the left.
This plants gets more comments at my home than any other. It holds the variegation better than any other.

Hey OzmonKey,

Your plant list says you have one planted in ground. How good/bad has it overwinter for you?

Got some leaf shots today, it's pretty amazing it can be so variegated and still grow well.

I'm waiting for signs of life to re-emerge. It looked great last fall and stayed green into the new year, but I think the surprise extension of winter might have done it in. It's crispy and brown.

I may eventually get another one and keep it potted.
