Easily adapts to nearly any well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Cut back after the first hard frost. Emerges very late each spring; take care not to damage the crowns when cultivating nearby. Clumps may be divided every 2 to 3 years, but are best if left undisturbed.
