--Plant Review--
I have a big patch of it in my old house, and was able to only get a snippet of a variegated one, and a small rooted original. Very cold tolerant (almost typed told colerant!).

Can turn deep green without full sun, but still look really good and stay generally compact. My variant doesn't fit any of the plants (neither Fools gold nor tricolor) but looks very good. I will have to see if it roots.

I haven't seen it bloom yet :0

Valuable source of nectar for honey bees.

Developed in Germany under the cultivar name of 'Schorbuser Blut', but sold in commerce in the U. S. under the trade name of 'Dragon's Blood'.
A tough and colorful ground cover plant.
