This tall distinctive plant with prominent foliage, opens astonishing Sulphur yellow flowers which are light and feathery with papery bracts. A very rare plant from eastern Europe, very few fertile seeds are ever collected.
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.
