Comments

Drainage issues are a concern in the south. Use no more than 15% peat and drainage must be very good for this plant. Do not bury the crowns when you plant them out. We recommend transplanting to a 4" pot from a plug, not a larger size container.

Grower Notes

Be careful not to bury the crowns when planting.
