Pardancanda are hardy perennials that reach from 60 to 90 cm in height; this makes them ideal for use in garden borders.
Pardancanda bloom in the summer and carry saucer shaped flowers.

Pardancanda can be grown outdoors either from roots or seeds and should be sown in either early spring or early autumn. Bury the roots at about 5 to 7 cm; the pardancanda seeds can be sown on the surface. Ideally the Pardancanda should be grown in a sunny part of the garden that has a moist soil.
If starting off Pardancanda in a green house then do so about ten weeks in advance. First the Pardancanda seeds should be imbibed by placing the seeds (within soil) in a black bag, then placing in the fridge for one week. Seeds should then put out at a temperature of 21 to 30 Celsius; they normally take about two weeks to germinate. Seedlings should be transplanted into the garden either at the end of autumn or before the last frost of spring.
It is easy to look after Pardancanda, they like a moist soil so water regularly. Once the season is over in autumn, cut the plant back to the ground. If you require more Pardancanda then propagate by division in the spring.
