Neat, compact mounding habit with graceful cascading foliage; increases slowly by way of dense rhizomes. Prefers average to rich, well-drained soil in partial sun. Settings: Woodland, waterside, slope, perennial border, mixed container, mass planting, edging or container specimen. Height: 30-45cm (12-18”), spread: 45-60cm (18-24”).
