FRANCOA SONCHIFOLIA 'ROGERSON'S FORM'
A new and impressive form of the normally pale pink Francoa sonchifolia with large panicles of deepest pink, star-shaped blossoms strikingly marked with crimson, on long stalks. This is an ideal flower for cutting.
For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
