Large showy blue flowers open over finely-cut, feathery, almost fern-like foliage and are perfect for cutting, whilst the inflated seed-pods are also popular with flower arrangers. They may gently self-seed but very rarely become a nuisance!
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
