Thrives in humus-rich, well-drained soils. Spreads by rhizomes and can become invasive; best contained in a non-perforated pot with the lip above soil level. Protect root zone with a 4 to 6-inch layer of mulch to protect in harsh winter regions. Remove older canes and new shoots at the base to thin and reduce vigor.
