PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Sowing and/or growing instructions
A very easy plant to grow and maintain. In all but the most exposed sites it should not need staking. Cut down close to ground level in autumn. Clumps can be divided any time between autumn and early spring.

Seed propagation: Sow in Spring at 70F/20C, under glass, barely covering with a little compost or vermiculite. Prick out seedlings and grow on, planting out when no risk of frost. Some sources suggest that germination can be very slow and erratic and that seeds may benefit from cold stratification by sowing outside in the autumn. At other times, simulate winter by sowing in a small pot of good quality, slightly moist, sterilised compost, sealing inside a plastic bag and chilling in the fridge until the spring, then put in greenhouse or cold frame for germination.
