Numerous bright red or sometimes yellow flowers, open on many stems above bright green thick leathery leaved rosettes. This lovely new border or rockery plant was collected quite recently in South America (Patagonia).
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.
