Sometimes it's best if we don't mess around with plants. The candy cane just doesn't appeal to me, best left at Willy Wonker's place. How do you landscape that in without it looking like a sore thumb! I guess some red dyed mulch might help, or maybe white marble chips. Flowers that look like beach balls just don't look natural, plastic yes, but not natural.

You're right... It is, well: "vivid". I'd put it in the same class as that yellow-leaved Robinia, 'Frisia'. It's great to see - but in someone else's garden. But, as I say, the fact that it reverts so reliably diffuses the intensity of its coloring!
