Winter hardy to USDA Zone 7 (Zone 6 with a protected location and winter mulch) where it is easily grown in moist, humus-rich, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Plants perform best in full sun in the northern parts of their growing range, but appreciate some part afternoon shade in hot summer areas. Plants will spread by creeping stems which root at the nodes to form an attractive ground cover, but are not considered to be invasive. Species plants may be propagated by division, cuttings or seed. Species plants will flower in the first year from seed and therefore may be grown as annuals.
