A new, rarely-seen, and very attractive hardy perennial plant with thin spires of pink-eyed, creamy-white flowers which are held stiffly above clumps of distinctive, thick, rubbery, grey-green leaves. A most valuable flower on account of its mid-summer flowering period!
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.
Common name:Silver Loosestrife, Willow-Leaved Loosestrife
