Cultivate the soil before planting. Dig a hole that is twice as wide and deep as the container. Remove the plant from the container and place it in the hole, so that the soil level of the plant is the same as the surrounding soil. Fill the hole with soil, tamp down firmly, and water well, even if the soil is moist.
This plant likes to be watered during dry periods.
Prune this plant to ground level if it is frost damaged or untidy, as it grows from an underground rhizome.
