Special Care: In the fall when tops die after frost, cut off foliage, and tubers may be dug and stored in a cool, dry place until planting in spring. In climates where the soil does not freeze, plants can be grown as perennials. Plants reseed easily, but seedlings do not like to be crowded; make sure seedlings get thinned to 12"-24" apart when they are 2" tall (as you would when starting them from seed. Water frequently during hot weather.
