Description

A stunningly beautiful plant with tall stems to 40cm topped with a crowded whorl of bright straw yellow, although some say lichen-green, flowers in March/April. With a striking resemblance to a "Crown Imperial Fritillary" this stately plant can take your breath away on first encounter. It grows well in sun or partial shade and is utterly reliable, increasing yearly in good soil

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
