Description

Perhaps one of the strongest for naturalising with stronger stems and larger, later flowers than C. autumnale. This will grow well in sun or part shade, with the leaves emerge after flowering.

Care Tips

If these are already sprouting when they arrive, it will not have an adverse effect on the long-term health and vigour and they can be planted out as normal, taking care not to damage any emerging shoots.
