Planting & Care
  • Where winter hardy, tubers can be planted in fall 2 to 3 inches deep and spaced 4 to 6 inches apart
  • Tubers should be soaked overnight before planting
  • In colder regions, tubers can be planted in pots in fall and kept in a frost free location and set out for an early spring bloom
  • Another option for colder climates is to pot tubers in late winter or early spring and placed outside for late spring flowers
  • Often treated as an annual since overwintering doesn't always work and bulbs lose virgor after 2 to 3 seasons in warmer regions

None serious
