This variety has the largest flowers of all of the "Jacob's Ladders". Its name translated, appropriately means 'beautiful'. Yellow-eyed blue saucers are carried on strong stem bearing deeply slashed leaves.
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.
