Sowing instructions: Sow seeds at temperatures of around 18 to 22 Celsius, covering them with a thin layer of compost. The compost should be kept moist but not wet at all times. Germination should start to occur between 21 and 60 days. If germination is slow, you may wish to use the method of stratification

Planting instructions: Likes a moist but well drained soil in sun or partial shade. It will tolerate drier soils but will not flower nearly so well: dry conditions slow it down dramatically. You may not wish to plant too close to a pond or water, as it can become invasive on very damp soil.
