    Care Information
    Thrives in enriched, well-drained soils, in cool, shaded sites with consistent moisture. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Shear lightly just after bloom to stimulate a flush of fresh foliage. Divide clumps every 2-3 years in early spring.
