Description

A quite spectacular new plant we have never seen before with thick, blue-grey foliage resembling that of a carnation. Many tall thin stems carry countless wavy, convoluted, frilly-petalled creamy flowers with pink calyces. A Japanese nurseryman friend waxed ecstatic over this plant in full flower in our trial grounds!

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
