Darker-eyed, bright golden yellow flowers adorn this rarity endemic from the French eastern Alps where it is found at only 16 or 17 localities. On the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species, it is threatened by competing plant invaders, collecting and also agriculture. These seeds have been garden grown!
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.
