Chelene need space to grow and although they are upright in habit, the underground runners need room to spread and grow. They prefer an open site but don’t mind partial shade.Chelene grows best in deep, fertile, moist soil and will grow well in bog gardens and tolerates a heavier clay soil.Mulch the area well with organic matter in mid-spring once the new growth has appeared.
