Description

Pink to purple, untessellated flowers, each with a tiny white star in the throat are produced in abundance in the autumn along with the narrow, glossy leaves. This attractive dwarf species performs well in a pot but is strong enough to be grown in a choice spot outside. It inhabits much of the central Mediterranean Basin.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
