Gardeners' Notes:

RatingAuthorContent
Positive Nordlund On Jul 10, 2004, Nordlund from Madison, WI wrote:

I've grown three of these plants in Southern Wisconsin for 4 years, two in partial shade and one in sun. The plant in full sun is larger at about 3 feet tall and three feet wide. In partial shade, the plants are closer to 2 feet tall and less dense.

They have not been invasive in ordinary garden soil. Occasionally, perhaps three times in as many years, a shoot has emerged 6 inches from the original plant.
