This extremely rare, beautiful and valuable new discovery from the Arctic wastes of Eastern Russia bears a long succession of large, chocolate-tipped yellow flowers, which are produced throughout the spring and summer above a solid, soft foil of delicate ferny foliage. In a well-prepared bed it can reach nearly a metre in height and is exceptional on a north bank here.
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.
