Easily grown in calm water in full sun. Winter hardy to USDA Zone 4 as long as the roots do not freeze (i.e., water does not freeze down to the roots).

Established plants are generally less aggressive than the species, but will spread and colonize over time.

Roots may be planted in containers about 4-6" below the surface and anchored in the mud at the bottom of the water body in order to both control growth and facilitate any later moving of the plants.

Rhizomes of container-grown plants may be lifted in fall after plants die back and stored in a cool location (basement, root cellar or other frost-free area) until spring.
