Had this planted in nearly full shade last year and almost lost it. Moved it to where it can get partial sun and is now doing much better so far.

This is an excellent plant for the shade or partial shade. It makes a very showy plant and requires little care other than water when needed. It is a good border plant and easily divisible assuring you of a neat source of plants for yourself and to share with others. The white margin on the leaves looks especially good in the shade.
