Start in flats in early spring. Transplant 5" apart to full sun to partial shade, in a well composted soil. Forms perennial clump to 10-24". Easily grown; fastest growth and most succulent usable stems if there is adequate water and compost. Will survive even in boggy poorly drained conditions or shallow standing water. Cut small bunches right at the base rather than clipping a large area, for best regrowth. Remove flowering stems, which are tough.
