Description

This real show-stopper of a plant opens very large tubular bells which are heavily washed with purple outside and liberally spotted inside with red and purple. A gorgeous specimen making a slowly-spreading carpet. "Rare and unusual." (Graham Stuart Thomas). Seeds are collected from this selected bed of plants, but you will always discover a proportion of subsequent seedlings with different flower colours and markings, so please select the best.

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.
