Sprouting stems carry dazzling red leaves in earliest spring. Later they elongate before producing glorious yellow flower heads, when the leathery leaves retain the superbly contrasting blood red veining. Finally, in October, the leaves fall, leaving bright red, electric flex cane-like stems. A very high value plant for all seasons!
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.
