An absolutely superb rare and most desirable new plant from the mountains of central Japan, source of so many treasures. Large upward-facing saucers, of a darker veined magenta red, are produced almost endlessly from early summer into late autumn, on a nice compact cushion of hairy leaves. Long-lived, bone hardy and well-behaved...What more can you ask?
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.
