LOBULARIA MARITIMA AMETHYST WAVE
Sometimes grown as an annual this tough almost alpine like plant forms tight domes of foliage topped with dense balls of delicate, deep amethyst, purple flowers. But it's best feature is the strong honey scented perfume given off by its flowers, which on mass will travel quite a distance in late afternoon. Grows well on the edge of raised beds, rockeries or in patio containers.
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.
