In early spring, this rarely-offered plant opens its large white to lilac flowers which have a purple spot at the base of each petal. Seed for this plant was originally collected in The USA on Figueroa Mountain in Santa Barbara county. It is also found in grassy places near the coast from southern California to Baja.
Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
