Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – sow spring in a cold frame. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer. Division in spring. Very easy, the divisions can be planted out straight into their permanent positions.
We have very little information on this species and do not know if it will be hardy in Britain, though judging by its native range it should succeed outdoors in many parts of the country. It is likely to succeed in sun or light shade and to prefer a moist soil[K].
E. Asia – China, Japan, Korea, Manchuria, Siberia
