Planting Guide

Plant:  April-May with tip of bulb just above the soil.    Spacing 45 cm.  Flowers August-September.  Height 75-100 cm.

Hardy. Clump forming perennial.    Requires full sun or light shade, along with well drained fertile soil.   For best results feed with a slow release fertilizer that has high potash.  These large bulbs are best in the ground due their size, the bulbs clump up quickly so will not perform well in a pot, they need plenty of root space.

Propagation:  Once overcrowded, lift the clump, split by pulling apart gently and replant.
