This amazing inflorescence rather resembles English Plantago - except the flowers, slowly opening up the stem, are bright purple, and very pretty!! A valuable addition to the garden, it is very drought resistant, and the deep taproot will add beneficial nitrogen to your soil - so what's not to like? An intriguing American native, it makes a fascinating cut flower to baffle your friends!
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.
