Positive DonnaMack On May 10, 2010, DonnaMack from Elgin, IL (Zone 5a) wrote:

This plant is evergreen in zone 5a and requires little care in terms of water or fertilizer. It slowly spreads. Cut it back when it becomes scraggly. It is never unattractive, and one of the first plants to bloom in spring.
