Growing; In the wild tritonias grow in meadows that are moist throughout summer when the plants are flowering and dry during their dormant period in winter.
To thrive in Britain they need a well-drained, rich soil. Before planting dig in well-rotted manure, compost or any organic matter you can get hold of. As well as providing lots of nutrients this will help the ground to retain moisture in summer when buds are forming.
Poor soil will result in lots of foliage and few flowers, so it's worth putting effort into making it as fertile as possible before planting. If you don't have well-drained soil you can grow tritonias in pots but make sure they are kept well-watered from August onwards. Store the containers somewhere dry during the winter.
Propagation; The best way to propagate tritonia is by division. The plants become congested after three or four years, resulting in poor flowering. Dig up your clump and break off the new corms that will have formed on the top of older woody ones, and throw the latter away.
A quick twist will usually do the job cleanly. The best time for this is in late autumn when they have finished flowering. However, if our unpredictable weather turns very wet again, as it easily might, it would be better to leave doing this until spring.
