Description

This rare and extremely beautiful, clump-forming herbaceous alpine has a hardy tuberous root, and grey-green, divided, fern-like foliage. Heavy sprays of tubular, deep brick-red flowers are borne in upright racemes in March and April. It does best in very well-drained, moderately fertile soil in an open sunny position or light dappled shade.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds IMMEDIATELY you receive them, at any time of the year, they depend on having several months, sometimes up to a year in cold, damp compost, (NOT DRY IN A FRIDGE) before they will germinate. Keep the seed tray moist in a cold greenhouse or shady corner and do not discard. These fresh seeds can be very slow to germinate but do not use any artificial heat in an attempt to germinate them as it may simply disrupt their germination mechanism causing them to enter even deeper dormancy.
