Podophyllum Hexandrum Pink
This is the rare, sugar-pink coloured form of this very choice plant which has crystalline cup-flowers opening over marbled bronze, rubbery, trillium-like leaves, which erupt through the ground like folded umbrellas. Later are produced the enormous brilliant-red fruits, as large as a bantam's egg. In good moist soil this treasure is spectacular and very long-lived but too rarely seen!
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.
