GERANIUM SESSILIFLORUM NIGRICANS
This rarely-seen or offered form of this quite incredible high alpine from New Zealand forms a tight bun of tiny, darkest bronze, almost black leaves, which are studded with stemless, lemon-eyed, starry white flowers. Probably the smallest and most delicate of all hardy geraniums, it will make a superb addition in an alpine trough or alpine house, or even a well-drained rock garden where it will not be overgrown by more vigorous plants.
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.
