Symphytum Ibericum 'Spring Gold'
Early rosettes of bright golden leaves brighten up the spring garden with snowdrops and crocuses. Later appear the pale blue and pink flowers. This form comes true from seed, viable seeds being very few and very difficult to collect!
For best results, sow seeds 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 although germination can 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 wait for spring before emerging regardless of when they are sown. Spring sowing will obviously give them a full season of growth. These seeds can sometimes exhibit very deep dormancy so do not discard the seed tray until more than a year has passed.
