Unusual green flowers open in sprays on tall, strong stems which arise from basal rosettes of large leaves. The young plant looks much like a large celery-green bud with deep parallel veins, and as it grows, the leaves swirl around the plant in an attractive way. It is found across North America in wet soils in meadows, sunny stream banks, and open forests, from sea level up to 1,600m. Few seeds collected.
For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. These seeds can be very slow indeed to germinate, and may wait for spring before emerging whenever sown. Do not use artificial heat to try to germinate them as it will simply disrupt their germination mechanism. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan.
