Positive chiron On Jan 7, 2007, chiron from Midland, MI (Zone 5b) wrote:

I have grown this plant for two seasons in container ponds. It quickly filled the pot it came in and I have repotted it once. This fall I noticed that the second pot has split, so it will be repotted/divided in the spring. Last summer it produced a few flower spikes. They were very short, nearly spherical. I put in a small pond form this fall and it will go there in the spring. Last winter I carried it over by sinking the pot in the ground, this winter it is sitting in the pond in about 6" of water.
