Description

Appropriately-named as "The Hardy Gloxinia" with large, exotic-looking, mauve-pink trumpet-shaped blooms which appear before the foliage. Despite its exotic appearance, it is bone hardy as long as it is grown in well-drained soil, such as a rock garden or raised bed.

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.
