Doronicum General Information

Doronicum are fine for cutting in early spring. One of the earliest blooming perennials and an excellent plant under shrubs and trees if the soil is kept moist in the summer. Idaho has restricted all potted plant material from being shipped into Idaho at this time.

Doronicum Plant Care

Plant can be dormant in midsummer if dry, the foliage partially disappearing, and then returning. Best in light shade. Cut back by half after blooming to prevent re-seeding. Can be divided in early spring every 2-3 years.
