Short stems arise from a tiny grassy-leaved tuft of silver-blue foliage in spring, supporting beautiful blue bells that are very large for the size of the plant. This bone-hardy rare endemic from the Komovi mountains of Montenegro is probably best grown in a trough or in a site in the rock garden, where it will not be overwhelmed by neighboring plants.
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.
