Description

A very rare Catalan species blooming from June to August with almost stemless, disproportionately large, yellow-throated, white funnel-shaped flowers which are so dense as to often obscure the tight cushions of foliage, which are composed of most unusual, sticky, tacky, aromatic leaves (due to hairs on the leaves and stems). Its sole locus is in Eastern Spain, in the vicinity of Montseny near Barcelona.

Sowing Advice

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.
