Provide a site with well drained soil. Plant so the tops of the rhiziomes are slightly exposed. Follow a regular watering schedule during the first growing season to establish a deep, extensive root system. Watering can be reduced after establishment. Fertilize with a balanced bulb food in early spring; repeat after spring flowers fade. For a neat appearance, remove old foliage before new leaves emerge. Thin clumps every 3 to 4 years in late summer or early fall.
