Plants are hardy to at least -15°c. The species in this genus do not often hybridize and so seed can generally be relied upon to come true. The plants are self-fertile. A beautiful plant, it was at one time cultivated as a culinary plant but has fallen into disuse. The plant produces a mass of thick white roots which can spread at an alarming rate, especially in light soils. It can often fill an entire bed with its tenaceous roots, killing off less vigorous plants. It is best grown in the wild garden where it can be allowed to romp without harm. Plants can also succeed when growing in thin grass. Plants produce seed freely and often self-sow. Slugs are very attracted to this plant, we have had great problems growing it on our Cornish trial grounds because the slugs eat out all the new shoots in spring and can kill even well-established specimens[K].Members of this genus are rarely if ever troubled by browsing deer.
