This species is not very hardy in Britain, it succeeds outdoors in S. Devon, but even there it should be given a good protective mulch over the winter. Plants can be grown as summer bedding in many parts of the country, the tubers can be dug up in the autumn after being lightly frosted. They can be stored over winter in a cool but frost-free place in moist soil or leaves.Slugs love the young growth in spring and can cause serious damage to plants.
