If it is planted in the bottom, do not cover the rhizome because it will rot. Easy to propagate by splitting the horizontal rhizome. A hardy plant which grows in all conditions.

This is the narrow leaf or needle leaf variety each leaf growing to approx 25 cm long and one cm wide. Plant supplied is 10-15 cm tall with 10-15 leaves.
