Tropical foliage plant, can only be overwintered indoors. We planted ours outside, so I figured we'd need a replacement to fill its space come spring. Sure enough, in a hard freeze (by Houston standards) in early January, the plants were killed to the ground, and they showed no sign of life as temperatures returned to balmy late-winter conditions. But then, in late March, there were a few small blades emerging from both locations. I don't know if they'll amount to anything, but it's nice to know they survived.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: waterfall pondside
