Description

From compact clumps of sword-like leaves arise long wiry stems with star-shaped flowers in brilliant and varied colours, which open in succession from July to September. These are the very best of the selections which are often used as cut flowers, and in a warm climate these plants will naturalize and self-sow without being invasive.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot. .
