This lovely flower is often found in the wild growing in woodlands and on the verges of country roads, where it shows its rich green leaves usually for 12 months long. The bright pink flowers appear throughout spring and summer and are often to be found open at any time of the year. It is found throughout central, western and northern Europe, and locally in southern Europe, and interestingly it is dioecious, a botanical term that means the male and female flowers are carried on separate plants.

Sowing Advice

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.
