When to Plant
Transplant at any time of year, for bloom the following winter/spring.
Harvesting
Wait until the sepals harden and stamens start to shed before cutting.
Post Harvest Care
Prone to wilting when cut too early. Some growers slice the stems lengthwise to increase water uptake. More mature flowers are longer lasting than newly opened flowers.
Diseases / Insects
Generally pest- and disease-free.
Bailey's Notes
Best grown in partial shade. Can be planted in a woodland setting. Very long lived. This series of hybrids is far more vigorous than the more commonly available "orentalis" types. They bloom faster and produce more stems than seed grown strains.
