But they look so perfect with hostas, at least in the early summer before
they collapse and choke out everything around them.  According to Avent's
catalogue, Trandescantia=Setcreasea is hardy down to 0 degrees (F), so I am
going to plant it outside and see if it retains it's attractiveness all
season, or if it collapses like its relative, the spiderwort.  I think it
will look gorgeous planted around H. ventricosa Aureomarginata.
