ACro­cos­mias pre­fer a sunny site – but that doesn’t mean they like bone dry con­di­tions. They ac­tu­ally grow best in rich, moist soil and strug­gle dur­ing drought. They can also be­come crowded af­ter sev­eral years and ben­e­fit from be­ing di­vided. This is best done in Fe­bru­ary, as they start to grow but be­fore the new shoots have be­come too long.
