    Care Information
    Provide enriched, moist, well-drained soil. Best in a bright to deep shade position, with over-story shelter in harsh climates. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. May be over-wintered indoors in colder northern zones. Clumps may be divided in early spring.
