Care Provide average soil with consistent moisture; thrives in a moist, boggy environment, but tolerates drier conditions when established. For a tidy appearance, remove old, faded foliage before new foliage emerges. Clumps are often slow to establish, but once established will spread by creeping rhizomes. Adapts well to containers.
