A new and extremely beautiful hybrid between E. mellifera and the very rare E. stygiana which is now almost extinct in its home on the Azores Islands. Broad leathery evergreen leaves clad strong stems terminating in umbels of honey scented bronze flowers.
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.
