BUPLEURUM 'BRONZE BEAUTY'
We have developed this extremely attractive dwarf form of the totally perennial Bupleurum longifolium. Lacy, divided, yellow, almost astrantia-like seedheads magically transform in early summer into plates of coppery-bronze. Superb in a hot garden where it makes an ideal cut or dried flower.
For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. These seeds can be very slow indeed to germinate, and may wait for spring before emerging whenever sown. Do not use artificial heat to try to germinate them as it will simply disrupt their germination mechanism. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan.
