Frost Hardy. Perennial. These bulbs need very well-drained soil they do not like sitting in water. Very easy to grow, best in pots for the first year, either indoors or somewhere sheltered outside in semi shade. Use a good quality multipurpose compost that is free draining. After flowering the bulbs start to produce foliage which will carry through to the winter months. Stop watering late October and allow your bulbs to become dormant. Start watering again in March.
Propagate: Once the foliage has died back and compost is dry, separate the bulbs, store in a cool dry place and replant in February – March.
