It likes well drained hummus rich soils and can stand some drought when established.  It is best grown in semi shade and does well beneath trees in dappled light.  It makes an excellent pot plant for areas which have light shade.  It will grow outdoors in northern regions, and will tolerate light frosts, but cannot stand heavy frosts.
