This variety does not produce latge tubers and grows up to 8 feet(2.2mtrs) and flowers in late September to October when little esle is flowering. It spreads easily as each root tip turns into a tuber. The main plant dies and the following year many new shoots starts up to one metre from the main plant. In my garden I have to be hard and pull up lots of shoots that would otherwise smother my other plants. Nevertheless as a back border plant it adds height and flowers late in the year.
