Obtained only as 'Seed Collected Alpine Papua New Guinea' and not yet in wide cultivation, this tiniest of dwarf gems does best in a shady corner or a pot out of the sun,where it makes an attractive, slowly creeping and rooting carpet of tiny hairy leaves with miniature blue flowers in the spring!
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.
