Description

Fragrant spring blooming flowers, open their blooms which are between yellow and purple, with white or yellow beards. Living on the stony hillsides of the Eastern Mediterranean, notably in North West Turkey, this rare and diminutive gem possesses a disproportionately large flower which rises out of an unruly tangle of small blue-green or greyish green curved leaves.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them very thinly with compost or grit, and leaving some of the seed showing, as light can initiate germination, just as in the wild, and leave in a well-lit, warm spot. Sometimes, artificial heat may not be needed, and may prevent germination, as some species will only germinate in the spring after being chilled in the moist seed tray. Grow on in sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground.
