Violet-eyed, open, blue stars densely stud many hairy stems which arise from hairy, primrose-like foliage. This splendid gem flowers late in the season, July and August, and will naturalise if you are lucky, gently self-seeding. One of the few bell flowers that will thrive and prosper on a hot dry bank!
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.
Common name:Spanish Bellflower
