Numerous long, graceful, pointed spikes of brightest blue flowers open from June until late summer. This popular, long-flowering herbaceous border plant also produces excellent cut flowers. Very long-lived, and bone-hardy, it will gently self-seed to places where little else will grow!
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.
