This species is very popular in Poland in wild. The leaves the 1-year old plants died in end of May. In next year plants flower and produce seeds in August. The seeds germinate after cold period, so its sow in autumn or end of summer the best. Seeds have short viridity to sprout. The tubers are edible raw or cooked. These have very nice nut-like taste.
