Best grown in organically rich, medium wet to wet, well-drained soils in part shade. Soils must be kept uniformly moist and not allowed to dry out. Best performance occurs in cool summer climates where night temperatures consistently dip below 70 degrees F. In optimum growing conditions, plants may spread to form large clumps.
