Propagation

Seed - sow spring in situ. The seed usually germinates within four weeks[2].

Division in spring or autumn[2]. Larger clumps can be replanted direct into their permanent positions, though it is best to pot up smaller clumps and grow them on in a cold frame until they are rooting well. Plant them out in the spring. Basal cuttings in spring. Harvest the shoots when they are about 5 - 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.

Cuttings of semi-ripe shoots in summer.

Plants are hardy to about -10°c[4]. A good butterfly and moth plant[7]. There are some named varieties selected for their ornamental value[1]. The bruised leaves have a balsamic perfume[8]. Does well in the border or rock garden[3].
