Gardeners' Notes:

Negative kendallr On May 29, 2013, kendallr from Davidson, NC wrote:

This plant has beautiful foliage and flowers, but has extremely invasive stolons and roots on two of my properties in North Carolina, zones 6a and 8a. Manual removal and spraying has been ongoing to remove it.

This grows well in Rhode Island. planted 3 yrs ago and has survived very cold winters. Ours has grown larger and fuller ea. yr. Now stands 3 ft. by 2 -3 ft. Blooms are white about 1 inch wide at the top growing on thin sturdy stalks that are about 5-6" taller than leaves. Blooms end of July. Leaves are large and flowing. Makes a great filler plant along an ugly fence or in an empty spot. Requires moderate amts of sun.Ours gets filtered sun,located under birch trees, Drought tolerant. I never water this. Smaller plants sprouting nearby, it self seeds but is easy to control,by identifying leaves on baby plants, I just pluck plants out I don't need or want. Sprouts out of the ground in spring again.

After years of nothing happening with this plant, I have finally moved it two very different locations and it is blooming in both and looks great. One is in shade until mid to late afternoon; the other gets about 3 hrs of late morning, midday sun then shade. Very pretty and welcome blooms at this time of year.

Atlanta - these get big! Nice in leaf and blooms well. Bloom stalks on mine get over 4' high and sometimes need support.

A bit invasive so keep a sharp eye on it and use a weeding fork to get the roots. The leaves will pull right off and the root will continue to wander.

Also, I have a pink one in the middle of my walkway bed and moved some of the 'popups' to another location about 9' away and they bloomed white. Go figure!

A must have for late season color. The form is very nice all summer and it blooms here in Upstate NY in late August through October. Leave a bit of room for it to spread out.
