This variety is one of my favorites. It brightens up any shady area like a ray of sunshine. Petite size works well towards the front of the border. Moderate to fast grower for me in zn 5 - rich/humusy soil with supplemental watering (not irrigated). Easy divider. I have only grown this plant in nearly to full shade, because the coloration lends itself so well as a beacon of light, so I can't say how it would perform with more sun.
