Description

From flattened rosettes of deeply-lobed leaves arise short, strong, hollow stems bearing most attractive, and quite remarkable flowers which bear more than a passing resemblance to a fried egg! Frilly, ivory-white petals radiate out from a golden-eyed centre, and although it vaguely resembles our native "dandelion", this plant is guaranteed not to become a weed in your garden, just a lovely intriguing specimen. In the wild, as the name suggests, it comes from cold areas in Mongolia and the Far-East. Very few fertile seeds available.

Sowing Advice

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.
