Perfectly suited for covering large banks, beds and borders.  Care – Prefers rich, evenly moist, well-drained soils; tolerates a wide range of soil conditions including drought and bog when established. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed before new growth begins in spring. Promptly remove root suckers to prevent any unwanted spread.
