Description

This bold, architectural plant makes huge, silvery, woolly rosettes, sometimes a metre across, of great grey-white felted leaves. From this arises a tree-like stem covered in white wool, supporting a fantastic candelabra head of soft yellow flowers. It can be either a short-lived perennial or biennial, so allow to set seed before removing the exhausted plant. Seedlings will soon germinate, and may well need thinning.

Sowing Advice

For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
