This graceful plant has crinkled, dark green leaves, and bears from summer into early autumn delicate spikes of bell-shaped, shell-pink flowers, striped and spotted with red lines and spots. These lovely flowers were very popular in the past as pot plants, and indeed make lovely cut flowers.
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.
