Propagation

Seed - surface sow in spring in a cold frame. Do not allow the compost to become dry. Pre-chilling the seed for two weeks can improve germination rates[2]. Germination usually takes place within 2 weeks at 20°c[2]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer. Division in spring or autumn[3].

Cultivation

Succeeds in most good garden soils[4], preferring one that is well-drained and moisture retentive[3]. Prefers a sunny position[3].

Most species in this genus seem to be immune to the predations of rabbits[5]. Hybridizes freely with other members of this genus[3].

There is some confusion over this name. One report says that A. hauptii. Ledeb. is a synonym for Galatella hauptii. (Ledeb.)Lindl[6]. This is a name that is not at present accepted by most botanists and need not concern us[K]. However, the report then goes on to say that A. hauptii. Turcz. is a synonym of Galatella dahurica. DC. (which equals A. dahuricus. (DC.)Benth.), a plant found in shrubberies, forest edges and meadows up to the mountain zone[6]. We assume that our record refers to A. hauptii. Ledeb. but there must be some doubt about this[K]. Just to further confuse matters, one synonym for this species is A. fastigiatus. Ledeb. and there also seems to be an A. fastigiatus. Fisch. Some further investigation is required.
