Division in late spring. Best done as the new shoots first appear above ground. Take divisions with at least three canes in the clump, trying to cause as little root disturbance to the main plant as possible. Grow them on in light shade in a greenhouse in pots of a high fertility sandy medium. Mist the foliage regularly until plants are established. Plant them out into their permanent positions when a good root system has developed, which can take a year or more.Basal cane cuttings.

A very ornamental plant, it often loses its leaves in winter but is very hardy in Britain. Another report says that it is only hardy in the milder areas of Britain whilst yet another says that it tolerates temperatures down to about -20°c. The rhizome is running and can be invasive. It is fairly easy to control, however, because the new shoots are brittle and easily broken off of the plant. New shoots are produced from late May. This species is notably resistant to honey fungus.Plants often flower in Britain, sometimes continuously over a number of years, they are not monocarpic and often produce viable seed. Plants can be badly weakened by flowering but they usually recover, however they are likely to be killed if they are given artificial NPK fertilizers at this time.
