Living in zone 7a but with an 8a winter this past winter, I decided to try
Dracunculus vulgaris. I just received two and probably should have planned
earlier but didn't.
My questions are:
How much light should I let the plant have? I presume that shade with
dappled sun would be best, but am not certain.
Next -- any specific soil preferred? Should I add more compost? There's
great drainage here (basically an ex-sandpit) but I get annual deliveries
of oak leaf compost.
Next to last -- what's the expected height of the plant when flowering and
Finally - if I never dip below 7a, will it truly be reliably hardy or
should I give up and bring it in as I do other plants? If so, will it be
forming a tuber?
