Bright lemon-yellow 'pea' flowers open from blue-green calyces From March until May, which is early for a herbaceous perennial. These are carried on stout, almost black, slightly hairy, springy stems which are clothed in trifoliate leaves, sprouting from a single crown. This lovely lupin-like plant is found in the wild from Alaska and Siberia so is totally hardy. Easy and utterly non invasive, it is perfect for a well drained soil in full sun.
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.
