TELLIMA GRANDIFLORA 'SILVER FROST'
This is a brand new, drought-tolerant variety, forms of which are now on sale at high prices, with sprays of green and pink flower opening on arching stems in late spring. The leaves are attractively marked with silver in spring and summer before turning shades of bronze with bright red veining in the autumn and winter. The markings and colours on the foliage of these seedlings will vary so choose the prettiest to grow on.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
