Design IdeasA smaller version of this Lily-like plant. It is the traditional groundcover of the Japanese garden, planted at the base of pagoda lights and stone basins. A fine groundcover that stays small, it's perfect for entry gardens, courtyards and atriums. Very good as an edge plant for water gardens or arranged around the base of fountains. Plant as a linear edging in formal shade gardens or in small clusters in Asian gardens. Great for geometric layouts in postmodern and tropical schemes.
Care Information
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
