Seemingly forged from pure metallic pewter with silvery markings, the leaves alone are worth growing the plant for, although the strong pink flowers that open in the autumn complete the perfect picture of one of the most beautiful plants you can grow! This long-lived plant is easy anywhere, even in dry shade under trees, or even in a pot!
Sowing advice: Seeds should be sown at any time, and as soon as possible after you have received them. Sow the seeds thinly onto a gritty, loamy compost and cover about 6mm or 1/4 inch deep as light can inhibit germination. Keep at between 10 and 15 degrees C. Germination can take from one to twelve months and is generally erratic, a strategy that has evolved to protect the strain in the wild. Pot on into a low-organic content compost.
