Description

Crowds of wiry stems support dainty, pale yellow pincushion flowers over clumps of finely-cut foliage. The plant will appreciate sun and fertile soil and will seed itself around your garden if you allow it, and regular dead-heading will ensure a long-lasting display. The butterflies and bees will be regular visitors during the flowering season, from July until August.

Sowing Advice

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.
