Superb, hooded, helmet-shaped flowers of deepest rich purple-blue are held on stout stems amongst short but very thick and leathery, glossy leaves. After several years it forms a huge clump. The flowers appear whilst the leaves are still half developed, so the blooms are revealed in all their glory.

Sowing Advice

Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
