Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Performs well in sun but prefers a shady location. May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the eyes (tender white or purple swelling protruding from the crown area) are about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. Divide plants as needed in spring or autumn. A division is usually easiest in early spring before the leaves unfurl.

Pests or Diseases: Chewing insects and slugs can disfigure the foliage. Leaf Spots and Crown Rot.
