CONANTHERA BIFOLIA

$4.81 / packet

In stock

Description

A new, rare and exquisite relative of tecophilaea the "Chilean Crocus", from the Andes and very rarely available. Thin stems produce a succession of early summer flowers carrying reflexed, inky, gentian-blue petals with darker spotted white throats and protruding yellow tongues. It will be best grown in a very gritty soil in an alpine house or trough

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
