I moved some that were here at our house when we bought it. The ones that were planted in the dirt got pretty mangy during the summer. The ones I have growing in an old copper boiler on the porch still look happy and healthy, though much smaller

I only have the two right now, but I think that next year, before they come back up that I will put the rest of them in continers as well. They are so pretty but I don't really ahve a shady spot to plant them unless it's out in the woods, and I have ont yet gotten to the point of clearing out the junk under the trees so I can start putting in ferns and hostas under there. Though I AM pretty excited about it!
Oh, and I NEVER even tought of the copper boiler keeping the slugs off!! I should have realized it, I used to use copper tape around my avocado tree ans some other tender little things. It worked pretty well.
