CareProvide full sun and well-drained soil. In the South, some shade is preferred. Deadhead regularly. To overwinter tubers, dig them up after the first frost, clean them, and allow them to dry. Store in slightly moisted sand, peat, or sawdust and store in a cool but frost-free place.
PropagationDivide in spring by using a sharp knife to sever tubers, ensuring that each division has at least one eye.
