Thrives in evenly moist, slightly acidic soil. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish an extensive root system. In colder northern regions, apply a thick layer of mulch to protect root zone in winter. Leave foliage in place until early spring, then prune by two-thirds in spring. May be divided in spring or early fall.
