Plants are liable to injury by winter cold. They are hardy to about -20°c according to another report. This species is notably resistant to honey fungus. Plants only flower at intervals of many years. When they do come into flower most of the plants energies are directed into producing seed and consequently the plant is severely weakened. They sometimes die after flowering, but if left alone they will usually recover though they will look very poorly for a few years. If fed with artificial NPK fertilizers at this time the plants are more likely to die. A few stems on each plant usually produce flowers in most years without noticeable harm to the plant.Plants spread rapidly by means of underground suckers and are apt to be invasive, especially when they are well established. New canes are produced from late April.
