Obtained from a fanatical grower of these lovely umbellifers, this extremely rare plant, with compact heads of yellow-brown flowers, is found in the wild apparently only in the mountainous region of the Turkish Taurus mountains in the region of of the Cilician Gate! In case you are curious, the Cilician Gates (or Gülek Pass) a pass through the Taurus Mountains, connects the low plains of Cilicia to the Anatolian Plateau, through the narrow gorge of the Gökoluk River, climbing to over 1000m. We have no pictures other than of the remarkably unusual and attractive seeds, which do not resemble in the slightest those of any other bupleurum we have ever seen. Very few seeds.
For best results, sow seeds as soon as you receive them onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. These seeds can be very slow indeed to germinate, and may wait for spring before emerging whenever sown. Do not use artificial heat to try to germinate them as it will simply disrupt their germination mechanism. Please be very patient, and do not discard the seed pan.
