This rather 'scabious-like' plant with pale yellow flowers is perfect for the herbaceous border, where it will bloom reliably every year as well as being a constant source of cut flowers. Yellow 'petals' soon open from the bud illustrated.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
