This highly attractive plant has flowers of a deep richest blue, an effect unbroken except that each tiny flower is picked out with a delicate white crinoline-edge. They are natives of rocky hillsides in central Asia, but will do well in any well drained soil in a sunny spot and are fully cold-hardy.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
