Growing Hints:

Plant rhizomes in the fall 2 to 4 inches deep and 5 to 8 inches apart. Apply mulch to protect plants from the cold. If you have patience, seeds are in the form of berries and can be separated from the pulp and planted in the fall when they become ripe. They take two years to germinate and another two years to flower. Plants will eventually spread by way of their underground stem systems and form a colony. Do not pick the flowers. In order to do so you need to pick the leaves, which are important for providing the plants with nourishment the following year.
