Propagation

Seed - best sown in the autumn in a cold frame[2]. The seed can also be sown in a cold frame in spring, germinating best at a temperature of 10 - 13°c[3]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer if they have grown enough. If not, keep them in a cold frame for the winter and plant them out in late spring. Division in autumn or winter[4][3]. Very easy, 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.

Cultivation

Requires a humus-rich moist soil in semi-shade[2][3]. Succeeds in full sun only if the soil is reliably moist throughout the growing season[3]. Dislikes dry or acid soils. Does well in marshy soils. Grows well in heavy clay soils.

Plants are hardy to about -25°c[5], when growing in shallow water they even survive if the water is frozen[6]. A good bee plant, the flowers also attract flies. The flowers have a powerful, sweet scent when inhaled from a distance, though there are fishy undertones when inhaled near to[6].

Members of this genus are rarely if ever troubled by browsing deer[7].
