Description

One of the most attractive winter rosettes of any plant. Strikingly variegated 'soft' thistle leaves sprout forth a multitude of purple summer flowers on the standard plant which gently self-seeds in a hot year. This is the incredible albino version of the lovely purple form. Discovered by Dorian Roxburgh on her parent's farm in South West Spain and brought back to England. Sprays of fragrant green-eyed white flowers in long succession all summer. Fertile seeds are few and must be collected individually by hand.

Sowing Advice

For best results, seeds are best sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. These seeds are very sticky and must be pulled apart before being sown. Alternatively, sow in early spring in gentle warmth at 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3" pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
