Clustered heads of pale pinkish white flowers are held on short stems over clumps of mid-green, toothed, lance-shape leaves. This unusual native of Turkey, Armenia and Lebanon prefers a sunny site and blooms from April to May after which it produces its bizarre, inflated seed-pods, which are part of the main attraction.
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.
