Propagation

Seed - sow outdoors or in a cold frame. Plants resent root disturbance so the seed is best sown in situ in April[9], though the slugs will have a field day if you do not protect the plants[K]. If seed is in short supply then sow it in pots in a cold frame, putting a few seeds in each pot, and plant the pots out in early summer once the plants have put on at least 15cm of growth. Germination usually takes place within 1 - 6 months at 15°c[9].

Cuttings of young basal shoots in a frame in sand[10][11]. Harvest the shoots when they are about 10cm long with plenty of underground stem. Pot them up into individual pots and keep them in light shade in a cold frame or greenhouse until they are rooting well. Plant them out in the summer.

Division[11]. With care since the plant resents root disturbance. We have found that it is best not to disturb this plant and so do not try to divide it, relying instead on taking basal cuttings since these do not disturb the main clump[K].

Cultivation

Prefers a light rich sandy loam and a sunny position[10][11]. Likes a hot dry position[11], growing well on a dry sunny bank[12].

This species is hardy to about -15°c[11]. A deep-rooting plant[13], it strongly resents root disturbance and should be planted into its final position as soon as possible[9].

Slugs are strongly attracted to this plant and can destroy even established plants by eating out all the young shoots in spring[K].
