This vigorous, clump-formimg species produces nemerous leafy stems to three feet or more and bears pointed hairy leaves, glaucous beneath. The beautiful, broad, bell-shaped flowers are pale yellow-green, and wonderfully painted and veined with purple and blue both inside and on the outside. It comes from high woodlands in the Western Himalaya and Kashmir up to 3,500 meters.
Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
