Description

From the high limestone cliffs of Turkey comes this rare little plant with pendulous clusters of palest yellow flowers from May to August. En-masse these resemble melting wax, and as they age they turn blue and pink. The foliage consists of a small cushion of bristly tufted stems, with densely hairy narrow spoon shaped leaves. This perfect plant for a sunny, well drained site in a crevice, wall, raised bed or a scree sets very few good seeds.

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.
