Easily grown in average, medium to wet soils in full sun to part shade. Grows well in both boggy conditions (including shallow standing water to 3? deep) and consistently moist garden soils. Scorched leaf tips will occur if soils are allowed to dry out. In water gardens, it is planted in containers with up to 3? of water covering the crowns or in wet soils at the edge. Appreciates some relief from hot summer sun (e.g., afternoon shade or filtered sun) when grown in hot summer climates.
