FRANCOA SONCHIFOLIA 'PINK GIANT'
Several years ago a single seedling flowered with very large blossoms and beautifully bi-coloured petals on attractive short, stout stems. From this one plant we have established a superb seed strain with consistently larger, more attractive and longer lasting flowers, and given this rarely grown stately saxifrage relative from Chile an appropriate name.
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.
