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.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
