Description

This very attractive species is still extremely rare in cultivation and bears good-sized bells which are silvery-green overlaid with an attractive, repeating pattern of light red-brown chequering. Although it will do well in a shady, organic border, it may be better-suited to a pot in the alpine house.

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.
