    Pedoclimatic needs

    Grow in fertile, moist soil, even heavy but without stagnation. Preferentially sunny or partial shade exposure. Particularly suitable for free hedges or to create small groves. Very resistant to cold -22°/-25°C. Tend to be invasive due to the underground rhizomes which spread out of proportion, it must be controlled by planting it in flower beds or delimiting it with guard ditches at least 70-90 cm deep or by burying a metal containment plate transversely to a depth of at least 70-80 cm around the entire area to be delimited. The young shoots that emerge from the ground at the end of winter can be eaten cooked and have an excellent flavor reminiscent of artichokes.
