|Care||Provide slightly acidic, evenly moist, well-drained, humusy soil. Avoid harsh sun exposures. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system; once established, reduce frequency. Remove old, faded foliage before new leaves emerge in early spring.|
|Lore||This genus contains over 40 different species mostly native to China and Japan. H. plantaginea reached Europe in the 1780s, the species from which most modern hybrids descend. Due to the staggering number of existing hybrids that have been crossed and recrossed, plus the advances in tissue culture, ancestry of this and most modern hybrids is murky at best.|
