FRANCOA SONCHIFOLIA 'PETITE BOUQUET'
This excellent dwarf form bears rich pink flowers with the usual deep pink stripe along the centre of each petal. The rosette-forming, dark-stemmed, evergreen perennial leaves are broadly lance-shaped, lobed and mid-green with dark stems.
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.
