Design Ideas: This eastern native is sequestered in partially shaded, moist conditions. Typically rangy growth is set off by unique white spire flowers like dozens of drooping candles. A bonus of muted fall color that brings light and interest into shaded corners. A carefree native for background. Perfect in woodland gardens where it prefers the acidic soils and muted light of canopies overhead. A great candidate for wildlife friendly gardens composed of native plants of all kinds.

Prefers rich, evenly moist, well-drained soils; tolerates a wide range of soil conditions including drought and bog when established. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Feed before new growth begins in spring. Promptly remove root suckers to prevent any unwanted spread.
