This magnificent angelica bearing thick shiny leaves has rapidly become a cult plant. In midsummer, globular, almost solid heads, of dark crimson florets erupt on strong stems from inflated purple sheaths, providing a feast for pollinating insects. Very few fertile seeds are ever produced.
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate. Do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may cause them to enter even deeper dormancy.
