#ProPlantTips for Care:

This perennial rhizome thrives in moist, humus-rich, fertile soil, in partial sun or full shade. The more sun there is, however, the more important it is for the soil to remain moist. Drought tolerant in shaded areas, it's best to apply a 3-4 inch layer of mulch to help with soil moisture and insulation. Plant in an area with good air circulation to prevent fungal spots on the petals.

  • Thrives Partial Sun To Full Shade
  • Best In Moist Locations With Mulch
  • Well-Drained Fertile Soil
  • Aggressive But Not Invasive
  • Deer & Rabbit Resistant
