Dazzling, bright blue flowers, similar to forget-me-nots, are carried in small clusters on dividing stems over strong clumps of rough, narrow, mid green leaves in summer. This plant thrives best in bright, full-sun conditions in well-drained soil.
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.
