Additional Information

They add impact to an early summer border or can be dried for winter decoration. Attractive to bees and butterflies. Rabbit and deer resistant. Leave the foliage to die back naturally so this enables them to build up energy for the next year.There should be no reason to lift your bulbs during the winter as they are fully hardy. Instead, you should mulch the base of your plant well with mushroom compost. Propagate by seed in spring or by bulb offsets in autumn. Hardy perennial.

Hardy perennials are happy down to at least -5°C (23°F)
Half hardy perennials can withstand down to around 0°C (32°F)
And Tender perennials may be damaged by temperatures below 5°C (41°F)

Please remember that temperatures can vary significantly within quite a small area, and hardiness can be affected by soil, position and other factors.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
