Description

In spring and early summer, this rare and delightful compact plant makes a creeping carpet of deepest purple foliage, above which it bears dark violet flowers. It will gently self-seed, coming quite true and keeping the purple foliage, and is a superb plant either as a specimen or as a ground cover. Few seeds collected.

Sowing Advice

Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
