I have a pot of this lovely plant and I'm considering where to place it. I have plenty of woodland areas, but I also have some shady areas around the house, and a lot of borders along the 800 plus feet of stone wall.

Not surprising, this one didn't even last the first winter for me in zone 4.

I had this very lovely plant for several years but it eventually was swamped by other plants. I was too late to take action. Now I am looking for seed or plants. I want it back!
When growing in a shady woodland it was quite happy but other, bigger plants took command when I neglected it for some time.

I never heard of it either....it should survive here if given a chance.  Well worth trying to track down.

It spreads like a weed in the Pacific NW, by underground stems.  I would like to try some from seed, but I've never seen the seed offered.  I grow it in full sun, but my climate is quite cool, even for this region.  It definitely needs water until mid to late summer.

I received a plant of this species late summer, and planted it.  We'll have to see how it does over the winter, I'm hoping for the best.

I don't grow it myself in our woodland garden however it grows well in Southwest Scotland.

I like it. How long do the leaves usually persist (through summer?)?
