    Notes

    Cultivation

    Prefers a well-drained sandy peaty loam in a warm, sheltered sunny position[3]. Succeeds in areas where temperatures seldom fall much below freezing so long as it is given a sunny sheltered position and a well-drained soil[3]. Plants are hardy to at least -7°c in Australian gardens[4], though this cannot be translated directly to British gardens due to our cooler summers and colder longer and wetter winters. The plant has a strong scent of vanilla, this is especially noticeable on warm days[4].

    Propagation

    Seed - sow late winter in a cold greenhouse. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on for at least their first winter in a greenhouse. Plant out in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Division in spring.

    Range

    Australia - New South Wales, Tasmania, Victoria.

    Habitat

    Found in a variety of habitats from the coast to alpine areas. Eucalyptus forests, woodlands and sub-alpine meadows, favouring drier habitats than A. milleflorum[1].

    Known hazards

    None known

    Edible uses

    Root - cooked. Rather watery with a slightly sweet or bitter flavour[1]. Plants produce about 4 - 5 tubers, each of which are up to 3cm long[1].
