Description

This very rare native English wild flower is an attractive sub-shrub carrying dense, grey-hairy foliage, its white flowers with a yellow central blotch opening in late spring and early summer. It is eminently suitable for container growing or exposed coastal planting and positively thrives in full sun and sandy, drought-prone soils.

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.
