One of the very choicest of this unusual group of flowers, this variety has unusually tall stems, slightly bending at the top, holding truly exceptional, large, bright blue, spiky powderpuff flowers. Even the foliage is attractive consisting of thick, leathery, spathulate leaves, deeply veined beneath.
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.
