Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – best sown in a cold frame as soon as it is ripe in late summer. Spring sown seed is slower to germinate[200]. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and plant them out in the summer. Division in spring or autumn[200]. Some growers prefer to divide the plant immediately after flowering[200].
Grows best in a woodland soil in partial shade[1, 200]. The soil should be lime-free, moist, well-drained and moderately rich[200]. Dislikes full sun and windy positions[200]. Plants are best divided every three years in order to maintain their vigour[200].
E. Asia – Himalayas to China, Nepal and Tibet.
