Growing and Maintenance Tips:


Slow to medium spreading, ground cover growing best in a fairly moist soil. Dense foliage is good for choking out weeds. Will grow in partial to full shade, and with adequate moisture will tolerate some sun. To rejuvenate plant growth, mow (on a high setting) after blooming. Divide every two to three years to prevent centre dieback.
