  • Care
    Care Information
    Provide enriched, moist, well-drained soil. Best in a bright to deep shade position, with over-story shelter in harsh climates. Follow a regular watering schedule to establish a deep, extensive root system. May be over-wintered indoors in colder northern zones. Semi-evergreen in mild climates. Clumps may be divided in early spring.
