|Growing Hints:|| Plant tubers 3 inches deep and 4 to 6 inches apart in the fall for spring flowers. Tubers do not like to be dry and can be soaked overnight before planting for a faster start. |
Shriveled tubers can be re-hydrated by placing them in moist sand or peat moss for a couple of days before planting. Plant in large masses for the greatest show of color. Divide tubers when dormant.
