Make sure that all signs of frost have passed before planting Cerinthe outdoors, digging a hole that is as deep as the roots ball, allowing sufficient space between companion plants. Back fill the soil and water thoroughly and deeply to settle the soil in place.
Cerinthe need to e watered regularly until they are fully established during periods of drought. You may wish to deadhead faded flowers to prevent invasiveness. Trim back unkempt and untidy stems and foliage to encourage a more compact plant. Stake tall varieties to maintain a pleasing shape.
