Description

A deep purple form of the "Giant Plantain" coming completely true from seed with large shiny purple leaves producing a most impressive rosette from which arise long ,thin, thrusting-upwards, poker-like seed heads. This is a superb, showy, hardy perennial plant where foliage and form are required.

Sowing Advice

Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
