Description

In spring, very attractive, large, bowl-shaped, deep blue flowers with a central white stripe are produced on short four inch stems, flowering over a very long period. From Chile and other South American countries, this bulbous perennial will multiply up easily either in a sheltered scree or an alpine house. Few seeds.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
