This bulb is a beautiful plant flowering in late summer. It is not fully hardy and will need to be dug up before the first frost and replanted in April to May. Although I have had them overwinter in a well sheltered pot.They grow to a height of 75 to 100 cm (nearly 3 feet) and flowers around about August to September. I have planted it in full sun and shade and both flower well. It likes the soil to be neutral to acidic. If given rich soil it will grow taller and will need staking.
