A very rare and lovely new variety from Siberia and Manchuria, barely yet in cultivation. Thick, greyish, rather felted leaves are held on strong stems which bear numerous deep blue flowers surrounded by purple bracts.
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.
Packet Content:10 seeds (Approx)
