This is a tough one. I planted it in clay, in our shaded backyard, during 2013, The Year It Rained--which turned Maryland practically into a rainforest. The rain actually washed the clay away from the roots. I couldn't dig deep enough in the stuff, so they spent the year with exposed, shallow roots. And grew. And bloomed. And never looked anything other than the pictures show. The foliage is gorgeous. I didn't bother to dig them in deeper before winter, and the following spring I found I'd only lost one of the three plants.
