We have ours alongside the pond. Planted them last year and each plant had only 1 stem. This year the pink one (exactly the same as yours in the pic) has 7 stems. Can these be divided up? Maybe next year we can have them all the way along the edge of the pond. I love plants for free. It died down a bit over the winter but has rewarded us really well so far this year. We have guttering suspended along the edge of our raised ponds and plant in there, it works really well. These are so pretty and already have 3 whirls of flowers on the stems.

You can either divide them while they are dormant or, even easier, let them self seed
