plant is related to Daylilies and is a versatile plant in the landscape.
With long green leaves, and attractive purple fruit, this plant forms
thick patches as it fills in an area slowly by spreading with rhizomes.
This plant will grow to about 3 feet tall, so it could be considered
either a shrub or a tall groundcover. Does best in full sun or partial
shade. Requires moderate water or a mulch to retain moisture. When
planting, don't plant to deep as the rhizome should remain near the
surface of the soil. Allow for this plant to continually spread and
dividing up the clumps is recommended periodically. We grow this plant
from seed or division.
