In the spring showy lime-yellow bracts open which slowly age to red, on thin stems bearing narrow, bluish-green, linear leaves. This unusual plant superficially resembles that of a very tiny spruce or cypress tree, hence the common name. It is very adaptable, but can be invasive by underground runners in rich soils.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
