Planting Guide

Plant: March with 1-2 cm of soil on top of the root.   Spacing 6cm.     Flowers July-September.     Height 150 cm.

Frost tender. Perennial. Well-drained soil is needed.   Start these rhizomes in a pot in the greenhouse or conservatory. Use a good multipurpose compost,  add some bone-meal  around the edge of the pot and water in.    Once in growth you can plant out into the garden, they prefer a part shaded environment that offers morning or afternoon sun.   Add some bone-meal to the soil when planting out, avoiding contact with the rhizome.    During winter cover the crown with a mulch to protect from frost.

Propagation: Divide overcrowded clumps in spring.
