    Prepare your planting area by spreading 2 inches of compost over the area and dig the compost into the top 6 to 8 inches of soil. Compost will aid in drainage and improve the nutrient content of the soil. Dig a 6-inch-deep hole for each corm. Space the holes 12 to 15 inches apart in all directions. Set each Corm at a 3" depth, with its flat side on the bottom and fill in the hole with soil. Water the bed lightly so the soil is moist, but not saturated.

    Once blooms are established, dead head any blooms that are spent to prolong bloom time. After blooming season, cut back stalks to the grassy leaves. If you choose, you can leave the seed heads and stalks until spring for migrating birds to eat.
