Planting and Growing Doronicum

Easy to grow herbaceous plant. Plant in sun or part-shade, in a moist but well drained soil. Provide some support for the flowers of taller varieties, in early spring. Dead-head regularly to extend flowering period.

Ideal for a sunny border, lightly shaded border or a woodland garden. Compact varieties are also good for Alpine and Rock gardens. We recommend growing these plants a the front of the border or near a pathway, as the spectacular show of early blooms is always a delight after a dreary winter.
