A gorgeous slowly-spreading plant producing pure crimson 'pincushion' flowers on many branching stems over a very, very long flowering season. This rarely seen colour makes a bright splash even in the darkest corner.
For best results, sow immediately 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 germination can sometimes 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 have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
