A most unusual and impressively tall plant with hairy racemes of unreal-looking, densely packed, orchid-like brownish blue-purple flowers, from a large basal leaf rosette of attractive, shiny, and marbled star-shaped leaves. This biennial species is easily grown in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny spot where it readily self-sows under good conditions. aka "Stavesacre"
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.
