Very large, rich, deep violet-blue flowers with a red flush at the centre, open over a long period from early summer, and intermittently thereafter. Easy, in sun or light shade, it is an excellent plant for most gardens. Tough, hardy and reliable, it produces a low mound, of rich green leaves that slowly spreads. Cut the plant back to ground level after the first flush of flower and you produce a repeat flowering in August-October. Always spectacular, it is a worthy winner of the R.H.S. A.G.M.
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.
