Additional Information

Great for borders and containers. Need good drainage. The soil temperature needs to be warm, so if the garden is frosted or cold then plant on in pots and place in a warm, sheltered spot, with plenty of light until the new growth has started. Plant at a depth of 3cm. Mulch for the first 2 years. Leave for a while to form clumps. In frost prone areas maintain a dry mulch in winter. If the plant gets too hot in the summer they will stop flowering and put their effort to producing more tuberous roots. Propagate established clumps by division in early spring or autumn. Bare Roots Addition info: Plants may lose the thick tuberous roots on transit however these are not necessary for the plant to grow. Hardy perennial.
