Robust sprays of fragrant, creamy white flowers open above compact stems, bearing leathery, slightly hairy, little-divided leaves, an unusual feature within this group of plants. A new, rare and extremely garden-worthy plant from the windy Azores Islands, it will puzzle even the most knowledgeable plant enthusiast!
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.
