This semi-evergreen perennial opens its purple bell shaped flowers, all beautifully-marked in the throat, over a prolonged period in early and mid summer. Coming from Mexico, it prefers a sandy well drained soil in full sun or part shade. It is completely hardy as long as it is not planted in boggy soil!
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.
