Description

Large, white-throated, three-petalled pink or purple flowers stand proudly above blue-green grass like foliage on this rare and relatively dwarf plant, which is ideal for naturalising on a hot dry bank. It will soon self-seed making attractive drifts in late spring and early summer.

Sowing Advice

Sow seeds at any time covering them with compost or grit 5mm deep, in a cool, well-lit spot outdoors. Artificial heat is not needed and can prevent germination. Many species will only germinate in the spring after a good chilling or freezing in the moist seed tray in the winter. Grow on seedlings in small pots before planting out into sharply draining compost in a pot, or the open ground in a well-drained spot.
