I was given a piece of this plant by a friend in September 2009 so I potted it up and kept it in the conservatory until the spring when I planted it out (2010) near the Dwarf Bald Cypress. In spring 2011 I moved it closer to the door and then divided it and planted one half at the end of the pool. In spring 2013 I moved it from the Helipad And Tiers garden to the Bluebird Perennials Garden.
