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.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
