Description

From Western China, this rare and delightful species bears in July drumsticks of delicate rose-lilac flowers with dark red filaments. These honey-scented heads look to be made of pink velvet. It is seldom seen, but in contrast to its rarity this well-mannered plant is easy in the garden in sun or light shade and a fertile soil. It is native to slopes from 2500-3000 metres, of W Xinjiang in China, Kazakstan, Mongolia and Russia.

Sowing Advice

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.
