This remarkable, quite new cottage garden delight has large, strikingly-crested, slowly darkening blooms of gold, lemon, orange and apricot with a dark, contrasting, pin-cushion boss of tightly-quilled petals. Easily grown by simply broadcasting the seeds.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
