Notes

Wide spreading plants due to rhizomes. Provide good air circulation to prevent mildew. Avoid dry soils to insure quality foliage but at the same time dry soils help to keep the plant somewhat in check and from spreading too much. Divide every 3-4 years to maintain vigor. Deadhead to prolong bloom.
