Numerous greenish-white flowers open in compound stems on stiffly-branching stems. The pale green leaves are sword-shaped, arching and produced in rosettes, the leaf margins being set with many bristle-like teeth. Long-flowering and ideal as a cut flower, it is totally hardy and exceedingly tough growing in dry sun or part 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.
