It also grows in Algeria and Tunisia and on the Greek islands of Rhodes, Karpathos, and Crete, where it may have been introduced by monks.

>Plant tubers 3-5cm (1¼-2in) deep and several to a large hole dug out with a spade. Alternatively, they may be planted singly
>Do not plant too deeply or they may not flower
>To establish quickly, plant tubers when they are in root growth. This will also help to distinguish between the top and bottom of the tuber
>Grow in part shade in any moderately fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil, avoiding excessive summer moisture
>Mulch annually with leafmould as leaves die down and in frost-prone areas provide a deep loose mulch such as bark chips
>Grow borderline hardy species in a cool greenhouse in bright filtered light with a little humidity
