    • I purchased 3 of these plants to cover exposed spots on my front garden, which gets so much sun, especially in the afternoon, so they needed to be strong. Weeks later they're so large im thinking of dividing them! I just left them and they did all they're supposed to do and more- spread quickly and beautifully, not fussy about soil, didn't need any supplemental watering, recovered quickly when caterpillars ate them, and seem to love the sun so much they spilled onto the stone walkway. Absolutely perfect!

    • Love this plant because the foliage is so different. I disagree about the height though. Mine, in the garden grows closer to 12 -14 inches which is perfect as a middle sized plant. I even leave it in the ground well into winter.

    • This plant added a wonderful color and texture to my garden. I am excited to see if it will return here next year as we are in a pretty cold zone.

    • Low maintenance, fast spreading, great for borders.

    • Silver Cascade brightened the border of a mounded perennial garden beautifully. This year I'd like to plant more of them and fill in between some perennials...it's a favorite!

    • This plant is an excellent compliment to the Warsaw Nike Clematis I planted it beneath.
