Height x Spread / Trail
60 x 45 cm
July - October
Excellent in a bowl on its own, or with other tall flowering plants.
Prefers full sun, or partial shade with free-draining soil or compost.
Dies back over winter, but may revive in spring if protected from frost. Alternatively dig tubers before the first frosts and keep in a cool, frost free area. Replant in a pot the following spring.
Tubers should be protected by a mulch, or brought inside over winter unless in a sheltered position.
