Orange Gnome Arkwright's Campion Care
For the Orange Gnome Arkwright's Campion to thrive and put on the best show of blooms, it should be grown in full or partial sun. It prefers fertile soil that is free draining and evenly moist. To support its stunning flowers and foliage color, a slow-release, general fertilizer can be applied in the spring. Regular watering is required to keep the soil moist, particularly when grown in a pot.
Faded flowers can be removed to help encourage new buds to form. Once the stems have begun to die back in winter, you can prune them to ground level. To increase longevity, pot-grown plants can be moved under cover to overwinter.
