Description

Easily grown in drier shade or moist sunny spots. Foliage color richer in shade than in sun. Tends to languish in full shade. Thrives in moist soil, but also does well in average garden soil. Soil must not be allowed to dry out, however. Cut back to the ground in late winter. May benefit from a winter mulch.
