LA foliage is beautiful in areas where the summers are milder. They 
begin to get a little cholotic if too dry, but other than that, 
they're fine. Virginicas are a little nicer, as are Pseudacorus. 
Spraying LA's well with Cygon (which I have been lax about doing, as 
I hate the stuff) is important for keeping the borers at bay. I just 
found a clump of Voodoo Music with a borer the other day. LA's are 
worthless here for winter foliage. They die back to the ground, or 
should be cut back to the ground and mulched.
