This rare, unique, and elusive plant has been obtained from the Hungarian Botanic Garden at Vacratot, where it makes a slowly-spreading carpet of delicate stems carrying thin-tubed, flared-ended, sky blue flowers which have great value as they appear very late in the year, right into the first frosts, when almost all other bellflowers are long-gone. In fact, the last-flowering bellflower you can get! In the wild it grows in damp meadows in the foothills of Russia, northern Asia and Iran. It is also possibly the only "symphyandra" (rather than campanula) which has a gently-running perennial habit!
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
