(Also called G. eriostemon). A most unusual plant from Korea and Japan. Large shallowly lobed toothed leaves grow from a thick rootstock. Dense clusters of flat-faced white-eyed mauve-blue flowers appear from early spring through into summer. Spectacular if given space.
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.
