Description

This excellent peat garden plant makes 20-40cm tall stems densely clothed in shiny, whorled leaves which surround stems bearing clusters of semi-pendent, deepest purple, almost black, flowers with contrasting yellow anthers. Native to colder areas of both the USA and Japan, and blooming in mid to late summer, this is a very good, vigorous, hardy garden plant for a slightly shaded, damp to seasonally wet, humus-rich soil.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
