Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – sow early spring in situ or as soon as the seed is ripe. Division in spring or autumn. Very easy, larger clumps can be replanted direct into their permanent positions, though it is best to pot up smaller clumps and grow them on in a cold frame until they are rooting well. Plant them out in the spring.
Prefers a well-drained but moisture retentive soil in a sunny position[200]. Succeeds in most soils[1]. A calcifuge plant, it requires a lime-free soil[17].
Europe, including Britain, north to Lapland and Iceland, temperate Asia, N. America and Greenland.
