Cultivation Advice.

This includes the alpina, chisanensis, koreana, macropetala and their hybrids, i.e. spring flowering cultivars with nodding bell-like flowers and are all very hardy.  
They do not need the 'rich' growing conditions or deep planting that the large flowered cultivars prefer. Because they have very fine root systems they will not thrive in soil which is prone to water-logging and they will actually be happier in poorer soils with very free draining conditions. If required, prune immediately after main flowering. Avoid them becoming too excessively wet during their first autumn and winter in the ground or perhaps plant in the spring.
