Re: Hardiness of Dracunculus canariensis

Tom and all
Dracunculus canariensis is not hardy in London, UK (average minimum - 2 C). The main problem seems to be that it starts grwoth very early (December or even a little earlier) and simply cannot handle frosting when in leaf. I'd recommend frost-free in a well-ventilated greenhouse. The good news is that grown in this manner D. canarensis is very easy. It produces copious stolons each giving rise to a new tuber. It is also easy from seed and, if kept growing will flower from seed in 18 months (compared with 3 - 4 years from D. vulgaris).
