I used to grow Mariska years ago. It's a pretty one to grow. It seemed to me to have some vigor in the growth. I gave away some fans to a friend of ours and more fans grew in the space I dug. It just wanted to grow, increase and spread. I had it in a flowerbed that had loose and well draining soil.
