Flowering Months Harvest Months

Plant in a sheltered spot in full sun and a rich, fertile but well drained soil. Deadhead regularly to prolong flowering. Tender in frost – dig up the rhizomes before the first frost and store in a dry frost-free place before replanting after the last frost. In mild areas they can be left in the ground under a thick layer of dry mulch.
