Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

This 'Viking' does not spread by rhizomes and the seeds are sterile, therefore this will behave politely. New rosettes develop at base of plant in fall, new stems grow from these rosettes in spring. Deadhead spent flowers but plant itself should be left as is in fall.
