Cultivation

Prefers a deep fertile well-drained but moisture-retentive soil in full sun or with some shade at the hottest part of the day[2].

This species thrives in climates with a relatively cool summer and mild winters and tolerates temperatures down to about -15°c[2]. However, where prolonged cold temperatures are experienced without snow cover, it is best to mulch the plants well in winter with material such as bracken litter[2]. If the plants are cut back immediately after flowering they will usually produce a second flush of bloom in late summer[2]. The flowers last well when they are cut for indoor use[2].

There are many named varieties, selected for their ornamental value[2].
