Starry, flowers, varying from almost cream, through pale blue to deepest blue open in profusion on thin stems in early spring. In their native South African home these plants grow in sandy flats and against slopes. They will do best in a well-drained rockery.
Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
