Description

In late autumn and winter, above rosettes of grey-green leaves with deep purple reverse, bloom heads of extremely fragrant white or pale pink flowers with a magenta blotch near the nose and petals twisted into small propellers. These gems are native to woodland at 300–1,200 m elevation in the mountains of Cyprus.

Sowing Advice

Seeds should be sown at any time, and as soon as possible after you have received them. Sow the seeds thinly onto a gritty, loamy compost and cover about 6mm or 1/4 inch deep as light can inhibit germination. Keep at between 10 and 15 degrees C. Germination can take from one to twelve months and is generally erratic, a strategy that has evolved to protect the strain in the wild. Pot on into a low-organic content compost.
