They grow in any type of soil but prefer that they be rich in organic matter. Planting is done in autumn or spring.

Water regularly during the flowering period so that the substrate does not dry out completely. The rest of the year reduce watering slightly.

Prune flower stems when flowering ends.

They usually do not present serious pest and disease problems.

They are propagated by division in spring or fall. You do not have to dig up the rhizomes but you have to control their expansion.
