The deep color of the foliage makes for beautiful hedges year round. When the flowers burst forth in spring/summer they do a bit of a peek-a-boo from under the leaves like a stripper with a fan.

They do like their mulch to keep the soil moist around them. I've been growing them in large pots with great success. Keep the soil moist, and they'll reward you with gorgeous leaves and flowers.
