Planting And Care
Diligently water your plants.
Soak the entire root zone at least twice a week in dry summer weather.
Avoid frequent shallow sprinklings, which will not reach the deeper roots and may encourage fungus.
Plants do best with 90 inches of rain per year, so unless you live in a rainforest, water regularly.
Tolerates some light shade, but full sun with good air circulation. Enrich the soil with leaf mold or well-rotted organic matter to encourage good drainage. Dig a hole 2 to 3 times as deep as the bulbs are high and set the bulb in the hole pointy side up. Fill the hole with soil and tamp gently. Space bulbs at a distance equal to 3 times the bulbÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s diameter. For a good effect, plant plants in groups of 3 to 5 bulbs.
