This rare and extremely beautiful perennial plant is normally perfectly hardy and never fails to attract attention, but it excels in a sheltered position. Sizeable, slightly waxy, clear sky-blue flowers open on short strong stems above gorgeous bluish foliage, and 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, by predictably, Lord Anson. Sorry, very few seeds available, and we regret only one packet per customer
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.
