Soil:Good drainage is a must, especially in shaded areas.
Light: Thrive in shade, and very colorful varieties will get better color in part shade. The color can wash out in full sun, and too much heat and light can cause the leaves to scorch.
Water: Keep the soil evenly moist, but not consistently wet to prevent root rot.
Spacing: 1.5 feet apart
Fertilizing: An application of all purpose of garden fertilizer can be applied in spring.
Winterizing: Mulch in a 2-3" layer around the base will prevent freezing and thawing that can heave plants roots.
Maintenance & pruning: In spring clean up old tattered leaves before new growth starts to emerge too robustly. Cut back the entire flower stalk after flowering to put the plant's energy into growing more leaves.
