This plant I found quite by accident, growing at the edge of the woods here on our property. I don't know much about it's care, since I didn't plant any of them. They have a long bloom spike of about 3-4ft. with white, tubular blossoms. The leaves are lance-shaped, green with reddish mottling and have a sharp point and the end. It appears they spread by rhizomes. I'm afraid that is all I know.
