The yellow appearance of these flowers is produced by a dense puff of protruding stamens emerging from small sepals. The cluster of countless tiny fragrant flowers on the head of each stem have the most delicate appearance, and are contrasted sharply by the dark green, lace-like foliage. The plant's tall stems are best suited for the back of the border, where they will make a lovely display from July-August.
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.
