Notes

Leaves - raw or cooked[K]. The leaves are rather hairy and, especially as they age, have a slightly unpleasant bitterness. They are acceptable as a minor ingredient in mixed salads, but are generally less than pleasant to eat on their own[K]. Flowers - a pleasant taste and texture with a slight sweetness[1].

Propagation

Seed - surface sow spring in a cold frame. Germination usually takes place within 2 - 4 weeks at 18°c[2]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in a cold frame for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts.

Basal cuttings in spring[3]. Harvest the shoots when they are about 10 - 15cm 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 in spring or autumn[4]. The plant has a thick fleshy root with a number of crowns. Whilst this can be divided if great care is taken not to damage the root, it is not really recommended because the divisions take a long time to become established[5].

Cultivation

Succeeds in any well-drained fertile soil[6], but prefers a moist well-drained rich sandy loam and a neutral or alkaline soil in full sun, though it also tolerates partial shade[3][4][1]. When grown in exposed and windy positions, plants tend to grow better when in a poor soil[7].

Plants are hardy to at least -15°c[4]. If the plant is cut back as the flowers fade, it will usually produce a second flush of flowers later in the season[7]. The species in this genus do not often hybridize and so seed can generally be relied upon to come true[5]. The plants are self-fertile[5]. This species tends to produce seed abundantly in cultivation and will often self-sow[5][7]. Plants can be naturalized in the light dappled shade of a woodland[4]. There are some named forms selected for their ornamental value[4].

Members of this genus are rarely if ever troubled by browsing deer[6].
