STORIES & CURIOSITIES

How can this be? Is the plant sick? Will it live? It is not sick, and it is very tough. It's a freak of nature. If you cut this plant back to the ground in late autumn, it will re-shoot pure blonde in march to april depending on where you live. The key to this plant is that it stays blonde for about 2 months and then it slowly turns green, which creates beautiful contrasts of colours on its own. In summer the leaves turn green to protect the plant of hot temperatures.
