From the Caucasus mountains comes this quite spectacular plant with a remarkable resemblance to an absolutely giant muscari or "grape hyacinth". Several radiating thick, fleshy, pointed leaves rest upon the ground, whilst a stout stem arises, on the top of which numerous buds open into long-stemmed blue flowers. In a large pot or hot dry garden will be impressive.
Seeds may be sown at any time of the year onto a well-drained compost and covered about 5-10 mm deeply. Keep the pot moist at a temperature of between 18 and 22 degrees C in a well-lit position. Seeds should germinate within 2 to 6 weeks but may take much longer so do not discard the seed tray. Pot on small seedlings into 3 inch or 7cm pots until of a size suitable for final planting into a large pot or outside in warmer countries.
