Hardiness Hardy deciduous perennial (RHS Hardiness H5)
Flowers June and July
Height 30 - 40cm
Spread 20 - 40cm
Conditions  Part shade and moist, well drained, humous rich neutral to acidic soil
Sow Sow in early spring to summer on the surface of moist seed compost.  Press the seeds gently into the compost and cover with clear plastic.  Do not exclude light, which is needed for germination. Keep at a constant 18-22C and germination takes 3-4 weeks.  Transplant seedlings into pots when they are big enough to handle and grow on in cooler conditions.  Plant out into the garden after the last frost.  
Grow A rosette of leaves appear later than expected, generally in May.  The plants die back after flowering, when they can be tidied up, and start growing again in spring.  Mature clumps can be divided in spring.
