Description

Sprays of disproportionately large, dazzling pillar-box red flowers open on long stems, which radiate from sempervivum-like rosettes of hairy leaves. Although short-lived, this plant is easy to grow and has probably the brightest flowers of any of this large group of alpine plants.

Sowing Advice

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.
