Spikes of pinkish white flowers stand above rosettes of soft grey foliage at the base, which can spread to form good ground cover and also make an excellent foil for neighbouring plants. This elegant clary will do best in dappled shade. Flower spikes are displayed from July to August and are best removed after flowering to prolong the display and to keep the plant strong. Does best in warm well-drained 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.
