I found this plant on the sale table at Tower Hill Botanical Garden. Had never heard of it. Planted it in a shady and very wet part of the garden, same environs as Rodgersia, ferns, carex, ligularia, lobelia. It has happily chugged along for several years now. I pinch off the blooms - they are insignificant, no need for the plant to put energy into them. It's not a show stopping plant but it is attractive and neat, and gives me pleasure to see it.
