The flowers have no petals and the parts that look like petals are actually stamens. The flowers are borne in the spring before the leaves appear. The plant likes a cool, moist root zone and a sandy loam. Little pruning is needed other than an occasional thinning of older branches. The branches may be layered in the autumn.
