Easily cultivated in full sun to part shade, and medium moisture soils. It grows best in damp, rich, humid soils that don't dry out. Later in the winter, cut plants down to the ground.

The flowers are followed by attractive seed heads that last long into the winter. A perfect choice for borders along streams and ponds.
