Site Selection
Best grown in lean, gritty to rocky, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Plants perform well in dryish soils. They require sharp soil drainage. They will thrive in bright cool summers, but generally dislike the hot and humid summers of the deep South.

Planting Instructions
Seed – sow spring in cold frame and only just cover the seed. Do not allow the soil to dry out. The seed germinates in 1 -2 months at 15°c. Prick out the seedlings into individual pots when they are large enough to handle and plant them out in late spring of the following year. Division in spring or autumn. Fairly easy, the divisions can be planted out direct into their permanent positions if required.

Care
Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Divide clumps every 2 to 3 years in early spring.
