Best with upper plant in full sun and roots in shade. Mulch around plants to keep root zone cool. Plant bulbs 4-6" deep in very early spring. Potted plants may be planted any time from spring to fall. Plant in groups of three for best display and space 12" apart. Bulbs need good moisture year-round. Do not allow soil to dry out. Remove flowers as they fade to prevent seed from setting.
After bloom, cut plants back only after leaves and stems turn yellow.
