This bellflower relative is a rock garden plant that is also suitable for growing on the top of a wall or in an alpine trough. It makes low tufts of narrow, grass-like leaves, with short prostrate stems holding clusters or balls of violet-blue bells in early summer. This lovely effect resembles a mound of grass surrounded by a ring of flowers.
Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
