I have one plant in my zone 4 garden - it is labelled as pubigerum - right now it is sulking - no flowers for two years now or stay the same - small.

Easily grown in average, dry to medium wet, well-drained soils in part shade to full shade. Prefers rich, organic soils with even moisture in part shade. Tolerates drought once established. Spreads by rhizomes. Competes well with tree roots. In cold winter climates, cut back what is left of the foliage in late winter.
