This exciting recent discovery produces basal sprays of darkest mahogany-bronze, finely divided ferny foliage, making a perfect foil for the airy umbels of white heads. Bone hardy and long-living, at the middle or back of the border this makes a distinctive ferny-airy display. Ever since being revealed at Chelsea this has been an essential plant in modern gardens.
Sowing advice: For best results, sow seeds onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and although germination can be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C, we sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination as many seeds wait for spring before emerging regardless of when they are sown. Spring sowing will obviously give them a full season of growth.
