A lovely plant from the eastern part of Africa with pinkish-orange eyed, blue grey flowers slowly ageing to blue pink, a most intriguing metamorphosis. The semi-evergreen five-lobed leaves are an attractive dull bluish green. It will survive some frost if kept in a dryish sheltered spot but is far prettier in a large container indoors in colder countries.
For best results, sow seeds in good light at any time onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Seeds should ideally germinate in between 2 and 6 weeks although they make take considerably longer. Pot on seedlings before finally planting out into a container or a well-drained spot.
