Soil: Performs well in average to fertile soil.
Light: Thrives in part to full shade. Will tolerate a little more sun than other varieties, due to its yellow foliage.
Water: Has average water needs, and once established plants have some tolerance for dry shade (particularly plants with thick leaves). In general though, soils should never be allowed to dry out.
Spacing: 3 feet apart
Fertilizing: In spring a light fertilizer can be applied around the emerging plant, but not touching it.
Winterizing: Foliage should be left standing in fall, this will help protect the crown. If desired a layer of mulch can be applied in a 2" layer very near the base.
Maintenance & pruning: Groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves and cut flower spikes back as they finish blooming in summer.
