More Info, How-To's, Videos and more
Soil: Evenly moist, well-drained soils, rich in organic matter, are best.
Light: Part shade to full shade -- best in part shade (some morning sun, or sun dappled conditions).
Water: Moderate -- Established plants have some tolerance for dry shade (particularly plants with thick leaves), but soils should never be allowed to dry out. Water is best applied directly to the soil beneath the leaves.
Spacing: 1-2 feet
Fertilizing: Apply a layer of compost or rotted manure in early spring, which adds nutrients and moisture-retaining organic matter.
Winterizing: Foliage dies back to the ground after a hard frost and generally dissolves or blows away quickly. A 2" mulch after the ground freezes will help prevent heaving, and protect the shallow crowns.
Maintenance & pruning: Groom plants by removing yellow or dead leaves and cut flower spikes back as they finish blooming in summer.
