How to take care of Sulphureum
Sulphureum grows well in most well drained soil conditions but dislikes wet and alkaline soils. Remarkably drought tolerant once established. Sulphureum don’t like a full sun position so plant in light or full shade.
Whilst Sulphureum cope well with dry shade, more moisture and humus in the soil is beneficial. The foliage is best cut off at ground level shortly before new leaves emerge in spring, so as to fully reveal their beauty of form and colour.
Ideally, a mulch should then be applied to protect the new growth from frosts. Divide clumps in autumn or spring.
