A most unusual-coloured dwarf Chilean libertia making showy clumps in high meadows and very hardy. From iris-like leaves, arise numerous spikes of intriguing flower heads which are a rare shade of palest china blue and produce bright orange anthers. We have recently been reliably informed that the correct name for this plant is Libertia sessiliflora.
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.
