    I bought 3 of these several years ago from Spring Hill, and couldn't be happier! They continue to thrive and multiply, and I've been able to separate the tubers in the spring to make additional plants. They have large beautiful platter size leaves, and large, tall white blooms in early summer. Very happy! Planted in rich dark soil with good drainage.
