Care Information

  • Plant when danger of frost has passed and soil has warmed.
  • Alternatively start them off in a greenhouse.
  • Can be planted in the ground or in pots or containers.
  • Plant in well drained soil with the tip of the bulb showing.
  • Need a sunny or part shade location.
  • Let the foliage die back naturally, to put the goodness back in the bulb.
  • Cardiocrinum is a hardy bulb and can cope with severe frost but it does benefit from mulching in the winter.
