    I have this plant in my yard because I can’t resist the charming flowers and striking leaves, and it is one tough plant. For me, it grows in full sun to full shade and doesn’t even seem to notice hard clay soil. It is even semi-resistant to spraying with Round-Up. So you can’t beat it for a tough, fast-spreading attractive groundcover. My only advice is to be very selective on where you put it. In the right place it is a wonderful plant! In the wrong place, it will test your endurance in trying to eliminate it! Also if you live near Bristol, Tennessee, let me know if you want some!
