These popular relatives to the bell-flowers form a mound of green foliage, bearing inflated buds that open into large star-shaped blue blossoms that almost resemble sky-blue eggs. These are so unique that countless children have found themselves in serious trouble for 'popping' them before the flower opens! (They make quite a pop!)
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
