I believe that's its name, my mom bought 2 Persian Shield from Home Depot for the front yard and I wanted to know how to care for them, the whole walk-through. Also I wanted to know what other plants would work well with it, me and my mom are not gardeners and she does not want fruit, herb plants, or blooming flowers, she likes colored, large leafs. I believes she thinks the Persian Shield is some sort of pretty bush(Its a flower right?). please help as this is the 3ed day she have bought them and not planted yet.

Thank You

its grown mostly for the foliage, but it does flower, nothing thats real spectacular, or even noticeable.they grow in part to full sun, moderate water, though keep a bit drier when its cold, like its been the past week, dont let dry completely, but dont keep it soggy either
