They are among the finest flowering plants for greenhouse and window decoration, as well as for summer bedding. Being easy of cultivation, they should be in every collection.

They should be watered sparingly at first, but once well started, give plenty of water and air. When done blooming, dry off and store away, in the same manner as Dahlias or other bulbous roots.
