Description

Slender spikes of pure ivory-white flowers with attractive purple filamentous eyes, arise from rosettes of glossy dark green leaves, later forming hard green spherical seed capsules on thin stems. This plant is an absolute must for every cottage garden when it may gently self-seed into gravel or empty corners but is rarely a problem. These seeds may produce an occasional flower with a different colour.

Sowing Advice

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.
