These gorgeous Brazilian plants open their pretty, light blue flowers over a long period from May until September. Although they need a well-drained warm spot to do well outdoors they are well-worth the trouble, and are hardy to -8C in a greenhouse, or maybe grow them in a large pot when they will multiply up reliably each year.
Seeds may be sown at any time of the year onto a well-drained compost and covered about 5-10 cm deeply. Keep the pot moist at a temperature of between 18 and 22 degrees C in a well-lit position. Seeds should germinate within 2 to 6 weeks but may take much longer so do not discard the seed tray. Pot on small seedlings into 3" or 7cm pots until of a size suitable for final planting into a large pot or outside in a sheltered place in the UK, or in warmer countries.
