Easily cultivated on moist soil in a sunny site, but can tolerate poor soil and partial shade. Propagated by division and by seed. Takes 2–3 years to flower from seed. Plants prefer a neutral to slightly acid soil and will suffer in very acid or alkaline soils.

It resembles mid-spring in the greenhouse and germination is generally rapid and uniform. Prick out in individual pots, and the plants growing in the greenhouse for the first winter. Planting is carried outside in later spring. Can practice division in spring or after flowering in late summer or autumn. Moreover, the division can be successful at any time of year.
