Positive MotherNature4 On Jan 18, 2008, MotherNature4 from Bartow, FL (Zone 9a) wrote:

This attractive little cultivar will also propagate from leaf cuttings, but it isn't listed because it tends to lose its creamy margin through this method. It is best multiplied by taking small plants with part of the rhizome.

Plant it in well drained soil with room to spread out as it multiplies.
