Growing instructions for this plant: just put it in the ground.

I bought a large, horribly root-bound pot of this early in spring for next to nothing. I brought it home, sliced it in two, loosened the roots the best I could, and popped one of the halves in my mostly-shady rocky-rock garden, and the other in a full-sun border with well-amended soil. Both plants are thriving.

The plant that is growing in shade is a bit "leggier", but not unattractively so.
