Description

Racemes of lilac-blue flowers with slightly reflexed petals appear in early winter and will show through into the spring, suspended from narrow stems that emerge from clumps of 3-4 strap-like leaves that first show in autumn. This rarely offered plant is native to Syria and southern Turkey, where it is most at home in scrubland or in shady rocky places. Few seeds collected.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, keeping the seed pot in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination so be very patient as many species will only germinate in the spring after chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on individual seedlings in small pots until of sufficient size to be potted on or planted out into the open ground.
