Eye-catching green and yellow leaves provide color year-round (they do take on a pinkish hue in the winter). Is a great focal choice for a xeriscape/rock garden. Leaves have pointy ends, however, and although they provide striking visual interest, they are probably not a good choice for high-traffic areas with small children or pets.
