SCORZONERA SUBEROSA CARIENSIS
Open flowers with rays of purple flowers adorn this low-growing perennial, and are followed by lovely fluffy seed heads reminiscent of dandelion clocks. A charming addition to a rock garden or container display in well drained soil and a sunny location, where it will provide plenty of interest throughout the summer, and gently self-seed if lucky.
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.
