A quite different variation over the very old favourite "Miss Wilmott's Ghost", having a much broader, rather than columnar habit and much larger bracted glorious lime green flowers in early summer. Later, the "flowers" develop a shining silvery hue, appearing a full month after "Miss Wilmott", just barely managing to ripen in the autumn garden. This valuable discovery was brought back from Turkey by plant hunter Martyn Rix, where it was located in beech/pine forest near Trabzon.

Sowing Advice

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.
