Elegant spikes of open pale pink flowers, striped or stained with deeper pink, rise from a rosette of mid-green leaves. Great for placing at the front of a border, and very effective in paved areas. These plants grow best in full sun or partial shade in a moist but well drained soil. In colder areas, grow it near a warm wall, in a soil that drains well, but remains moist during summer. They do not like boggy or waterlogged conditions which can cause the crowns or clumps to rot off.
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.
