Small doses act as a heart tonic, whilst large doses depress cardiac function[3][1].

The root is harvested in the autumn and dried for later use[1].

Propagation

Seed - sow spring or autumn in a cold frame[1]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer. Division in spring. Larger divisions can be planted out direct into their permanent positions. We have found it best to pot up the smaller divisions and grow them on in a lightly shaded position in a cold frame, planting them out once they are well established in the summer.
