Planting Instructions

These lovely staples of the summer herbaceous border will not flourish on poor dry soil - they must have rich soil and summer moisture. They are hardy once established deeply, but do benefit from winter mulching to protect any early shoots, particularly in colder areas. Plant 4-6"(10-15cm) apart and 6 " deep and water well on planting. Alternatively plant in a pot and plant out in June, after all chance of frost is past. It is helpful to plan to split the clumps every 3-4years as this helps to prevent them declining. A warm apricot-yellow flower emerging from purplish buds, and with darker foliage, very floriferous.
