Description

Another absolutely NEW form of the "Red campion" which produces in late winter incredible spikes of strikingly bright cream foliage. This is amongst the brightest foliage in the garden until late spring when the pale foliage stops growing to send out short sprays of bright pink flowers.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow seeds 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. However, we sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, and often wait for spring before emerging regardless of when they are sown. But spring sowing will obviously give them a full season of growth if successful germination occurs.
