Comments: Does not like, hot, humid weather but is better adapted to the moist,cool, even climate of the Pacific coast. It prefers neutral to alkaline soils. Most parts of this species are edible. Some believe this plant to be a noxious weed. Performs well in large decorative garden pots and other containers. Fertilize in late winter and again in the summer. Periodically remove old browning foliage to keep plant tidy.
