Thrives in moist, fertile, slightly acidic, well-drained soils but highly adaptable. Prefers cool summer climates. Water deeply, regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. For a neat, tidy appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
