It took me several Summers to figure out what this plant wanted. Finally have it happy in mostly shade with a bit of evening sun.
Seems to prefer being tucked in around other plants for shelter.
Did not like sandy soil...prefers a heavier compost-y type soil.
Doesn't like to get too dry for long periods.
