Delicately-pencilled, sweetly-perfumed soft blue flowers have flared and frilled yellow beards. And ticking all of the boxes, the foliage also has bright green leaves striped with yellow. A strong-growing, herbaceous clump-former, this versatile plant is ideal for partially shady locations, borders, open woodland gardens, or even shade gardens. In short, it is perfect for adding height and structure to anywhere where it can really show off.
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.
