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 with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
