Propagation

Seed - sow spring in a cold frame. Only just cover the seed and do not allow the compost to become dry. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle, and grow them on for their first winter in pots. Plant them out into their permanent positions in spring or early summer. Division in spring or autumn. 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.

Cultivation

Succeeds in any moderately fertile moisture retentive soil in sun or semi-shade[4]. Grows well in heavy clay soils. Judging by the plants native habitat, it is likely to be tolerant of maritime exposure[K].

This species is not hardy in the colder areas of Britain, it tolerates temperatures down to between -5 and -10°c[4]. A rather greedy plant, it is apt to impoverish the soil[5].

The plant attracts various beneficial insects such as ladybirds, lacewings and hoverflies to the garden, these insects will help to control insect pests in the garden[6][7].
