I like this plant more every year. It has some very unusual shades of leaves.

Photos do not do this plant justice. It's much nicer than normally shown, as Goldfinch4 noted - it has interesting coloration to the individual leaves. Mine grows well in rich/humusy soil with supplemental watering (but not irrigated) and mid-day sun in zn 5.
