What are the pros? Quick shade, color, tropical
What are the cons? Bugs and birds eat them
I had 100% germination. These are supposed to be toxic but they get munched on by both birds and bugs. These plants grow super fast and the better the soil the bigger they get.The color of these stands out among plain green plants especially when they have scarlet colored fresh seed pods! They lend a tropical feel to the yard and are excellent to shade sun-shy smaller plants. They are a perennial in my zone unless we get a hard winter. Seedlings should not be allowed to dry out and even full sized plants love water.
