This compact, clump forming fleabane generally produces only one lavender-purple flower per stem, but gives a vibrant show of colour in contrast to the grey-green foliage. Native to North America, where it grows on ridges, rocky slopes, and outcroppings, it is ideal for troughs, rock gardens and edging, giving a vibrant splash of colour in early summer.
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.
