This spectacularly spiny plant gives a continual show of wonderfully crinkled silk-petalled pure white flowers from June through to the end of August, their centres coloured a delicate yellow by the golden pollen. Individual blooms are short lived but very impressive and are continually replaced by fresh blooms.
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.
