Cultural Notes

  • Soil - Any soil as long as it's well drained.
  • Position - Full sun
  • Cutting - Yes
  • Flowering - Summer
  • Additional Information - Attractive to bees and butterflies. Rabbit and deer resistant. These add impact to an early summer border or can be dried for winter decoration. Leave the foliage to die back naturally so this enables them to build up energy for the next year. No need to lift your bulbs during the winter, they are fully hardy. Instead, mulch the base of your plant with mushroom compost.
