    • I got this as a division from a gardening friend a couple of years ago. It has spread lushly around the border and I have now divided it many times. Beautiful in either shade or full sun. Just bigger in full sun. Drought tolerant. Deer don't like it. I have it w. heuchera caramel and/or chartreuse. Lovely. Also w. Bloody sorrel. Very interesting. Lovely massed or as an accent.
