Rather resembling a dwarfer Anemone narcissiflora, this rare gem has leaves with very wedge-shaped segments and large flowers of white, blue or even purple borne on more spreading scapes. In the wild it lives on open grassy and rocky slopes and moraines around 3300-4500 meters in the Central Himalaya eastwards to south western China. It is occasionally seen in cultivation, but the true plant is very rarely offered for sale. Plants thrive best in a loamy semi-woodland soil. Few good seeds collected.
Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months, sometimes up to a year in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner and do not discard. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate but do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism causing them to enter even deeper dormancy.
