I have been growing two small divisions in a 12" container for a couple years, now, as you see in the photo. They seem to be multiplying and growing well under my "style" of greenhousing. Flowers faithfully every spring with almost a month's long progression of blooms. Will inspect the rhizomes and re-pot this fall.
