Description

This new, fabulous, previously unknown scabious relative, collected high in the Taurus mountains of Turkey, may be the rarest plant we have ever sold. A dome of leathery leaves produces a summer-long succession of almost stemless, blue scabious flowers. The small proportion of solid, fertile seeds are very frugally produced and are collected individually.

Sowing Advice

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.
