Flowers: May/June with each plant producing one flower step topped with several flowers.

Height of plant: 20-30cm from crown

Propagation: You can divide these after they have flowered, but we have found that the best time to divide is as soon as young shoots appear March/April

How to plant:  Plant into a 5lt planting basket using heavy garden loam or Westland Aquatic Soil and place on a shelf in the pond.  Fill the planting basket to a depth so that the top of the rhizome at the base of the plant is level with the rim. Hold the plant securely and fill in with soil all around the roots, pressing the soil down very firmly until the planting crate is almost filled to the brim.  For aesthetic purposes, the soil can then be top dressed with no more than 1cm of pea gravel.

Recommended planting depth:  The planting depth for this plant measured from soil surface to water surface and not including any gravel dressing is  0-5cm.
