POTENTILLA NEPALENSIS 'HELEN JANE'
This beautiful new semi-dwarf cultivar is quite a winner with compact heads displaying crimson-eyed, bright pink flowers, and petals attractively crinkled just like crepe paper. New buds open repeatedly in a long succession, from spring until late summer.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
