I was recently given a division of Astilboides from another member and have planted it out in a shadey spot. Arlon has some nice one's in his garden.

Do you find it needs constant watering in a pot ?

Yep, tall , fluffy sort of thing. Not the best looking but a welcome interest / addition. Mine are up about a foot at the moment.
