Description

This beautiful, completely new, and possibly unique variegated form of the old English-Garden plant, "Alexanders", was discovered here at Plant World. It produces a strong stem bearing umbels of yellow flowers, which are held above cream and white-splashed, thick, shiny, dark green leaves, which produce an amazing brightly splashed mound in the spring. Seedlings of this rare beauty come up almost 100% true and variegated as shown. Fabulous for a wild garden or edge of border where it will gently re-appear annually.

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.
