Re: Melianthus 'major'
I grow Melianthus villosus without any trouble in a fairly open site. This past harsh winter was the first time it died back to ground level, resprouting vigorously this spring. Most years it's just tip growth that needs to be trimmed back. I believe the growing requirements and hardiness of M. major & M. villosus are the same. I never watered mine during the drought this year and it's fine, flowering quite profusely at the moment.
