I do have two of them but there location is such that I dont usually check on them. And they are in a ton of shade. They are alive but with all that shade they are kind of non-descript.

See this GW thread link for more info.

I have it also. Third year its come back with very good increase after the first year. Gets some sun so leaves retain a little coppery color. It's been divided into three plants and put up with my moving it several times before getting the right spot. Nice and healthy plant. Like plants that stay healthy and return each year. Yah!

shadyplace, I'd probably put it near my Astilbe, so that's already getting supplemental water when it's hot and dry out, so no biggie.

Rogue, are you saying that yours doesn't turn red? Mine would go in dappled shade.

Patty, that sounds perfect!
