This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. Because of its spreading habit of growth, it is ideally suited for use as a 'filler' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination; plant it near the edges where it can spill gracefully over the pot.
