"Fringe Cups" A North American plant suited to a shaded spot producing, from solid clumps of hairy leaves, numerous long arching stems each bearing racemes of many lime green flowers which age to a deep wine. Long-loved by flower arrangers as a cut flower.
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.
