How to grow

Cultivation

Grow in fertile, moist, but well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. If the soil is moist, a shadier position may be tolerated. To prevent the rhizomes rising to the surface, mulch annually and divide every few years

Propagation

Can be propagated by division; this genus need to be divided regularly. Lift the plant once in spring growth, taking small vigorous sections from around the edge. Each section should have good roots and 2-3 shoots
