STROBILANTHES ATROPURPUREA 'BLUE LIPS'
NEW! Discovered by a customer, this unusual form of Strobilanthes atropurpurea produces a late summer and autumn display of striking two-tone flowers. The normally completely blue, curved trumpet flowers now appear in white with attractive blue lips.
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.
