Planting Outdoors Spring

From Mid Spring TO Early Summer

Plant corms in moist compost in pots or in groups in open ground where they are to flower about 1in deep, keep moist.

 

Propagation by Division

From Late Summer TO Early Autumn

The rhizomes get bigger every year and can be divided by cutting the rhizomes into pieces, each piece having at least one bud, and re-planting the pieces. Although they do not develop offsets, in good conditions, the plant will produce seeds.

 

Flowering

From Late Winter TO Early Spring

Showy flowers in late winter/early spring.
