Propagation by division.

From Late Winter TO Late Winter

Lilyturf is best propagated by divisiding the root mass. The best time to do this is during the dormant season before the onset of new growth.

 

Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in moderately fertile, preferably acid, moist but well-drained soil in partial or full shade. Lilyturf can tolerate drought once established. Shelter from cold, drying winds in frost-prone areas
