This species is not very hardy in Britain, but where temperatures seldom fall below freezing the corms can be successfully grown at the foot of a south facing wall or in a south facing border. Plants from the higher altitudes of its range should be frost hardy. Plant the corms about 10 - 15cm deep and give them a good mulch in winter. Lift and dry off the corms when the growth dies down and store them in a cool place until it is time to replant them. Corms can also be planted in spring, they will flower in the summer and can then be dug up in the autumn and stored in a cool frost-free place over winter.The flowers open in the early evening and emit a sweet clove-like perfume.
