From Crete comes this charming one with woolly white leaves and yellow flowers with protruding scarlet anthers. These are ideal for a rock garden or wall, and are the dwarf relatives of many of the giants that often self-seed so prolifically along the roadsides of the world.
For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot.
