Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – it is best to surface sow the seed as soon as it is ripe in a light position in a cold frame[134]. Seed can also be sown in spring. It usually germinates in 2 – 3 weeks at 21¡c[134]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer. Division after flowering[111]. Very easy, the divisions can be planted out straight into their permanent positions if required. Cuttings in a shady border in summer[1].
Easily grown in ordinary well-drained soil. Succeeds in dry soils and on walls[K].
Most of Europe, including Britain, N. Africa and N. Asia to Japan.
