How to grow

Cultivation

Grow in a fertile, neutral soil in light or partial shade; colour will be more green in deeper shade. Ensure good drainage, especially in heavy soils. The woody rootstock tends to lift out of the ground over time, so mulch annually to retain moisture. Divide and replant every 3-4 years to maintain vigour

Propagation

Propagate by division in autumn
