Flowering from the bottom up. The rosette forming clumps grow 12 inches wide. Best grow in humus rich, moister retentive, soils in part shade; will take full sun if the soils are moist. Prefers slightly acid to neutral soils-use peat moss when planting out. Very attractive and popular species but requires some attention to its growing requirements. Plants bloom in June and July. They do not do well in areas with hot dry summers but should have dry conditions in winter, best covered with some evergreen branches. Plants start growth late in spring. In many areas best treated as a biennial to be divided after blooming.
