Anyone any experience? Mostly, of course, they seed around with abandon anyway. Here, the usual singles are getting into cracks in the paving, and expanding fast in the planted areas. Great. Lovely things anyway, and now making dense cover to shade out weed seedlings.
the ones I’m particularly interested in are three clumps of the rare double form. Sterile, so no seedlings. I wonder whether to pretend they are snow drops, and divide ‘in the green’, or wait for the foliage to die back, then divide what must be root (rhizome) clumps then. Don’t want to lose the thing… and should really hand a bit over to a nursery so that the plant gets into trade, and therefore less likely to be lost to cultivation. OK, it’s not the showiest of spring flowers, but I’m rather fond of its quirky looks.
