Sizeable, slightly waxy, clear sky-blue flowers open on short strong stems above gorgeous bluish foliage. This rare perennial plant is normally perfectly hardy and never fails to attract attention, but it excels in a sheltered position. It is a favourite of pollinating insects as demonstrated by the Marbled White butterfly in our gardens here at Plant World in Devon! For a perfect, competition-winning specimen, try one in a large pot in a bright spot indoors or in a greenhouse! It was only re-discovered and re-introduced into our gardens in recent years, but was originally discovered in the Straits of Magellan in 1774. Sorry, very few seeds available.
Sow seeds at any time onto a good soil-based compost covering seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. We recommend germinating at 15 to 20 degrees C. Germination may be very slow, perhaps 2-3 months, or sometimes much longer, and these seeds may sometimes wait for spring before emerging. Grow on individual seedlings in 3 inch pots before finally planting with climbing support in a well-drained spot or very large pot.
