Cultivation details

Grows well in ordinary garden soil and in the light shade of shrubs[1, 111]. Prefers a sunny position and a humus-rich soil[111]. Prefers a moist well-drained soil in sun or semi-shade[200]. A very ornamental plant[1]. A greedy plant inhibiting the growth of nearby plants, especially legumes[54]. Plants take about 4 years from seed to flowering[111].

Propagation

Seed - best sown in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe or else it can be slow to germinate[1]. Sow the seed in partial shade in rich soil in September or March[111]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow the plants on for their first winter in a cold frame. Plant out in late spring or early summer. Division in early spring or in autumn. The divisions can be difficult to establish[200], so it is probably best to pot them up first and keep them in a cold frame or greenhouse until they are growing away actively.
