A striking annual member of the pea family with crimson-pink flowers produced on long stalks, singly or in pairs, from May to July. Can be grown amongst meadow plants such as Oxeye daisies, Red Clover, and Tufted vetch, and also grasses, the narrow leaves camouflaging the plant well when not in flower, with the angled erect stems reaching up to 90cm.
Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
