PEUCEDANUM OSTRUTHIUM DAPHNIS
A colourful, variegated, shade perennial, recently introduced from France, which forms a slow spreading clump of divided grey-green leaves, smartly edged in creamy white, the lacy white flowers appearing during the summer. This variety appreciates a rich, moist soil and at least afternoon shade.
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. Variation in leaf form of seedlings may occur.
