A really bizarre plant which is totally different from all other strobilanthes, resembling nothing more than a green igloo of leaves, decorated in summer and autumn with pendulous tassels of white flowers (which are very frugal seed producers) and remind us of "The Shrimp Plant".
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.
