Lomelosia 'Blue Mound'
This new, fabulous, previously unknown scabious relative, collected high in the Taurus mountains of Turkey, may be the rarest plant we have ever sold. A dome of leathery leaves produces a summer-long succession of almost stemless, blue scabious flowers. The small proportion of solid, fertile seeds are very frugally produced and are collected individually.
Sow immediately at any time onto preferably a soil-based compost, covering with fine grit to approximately their own depth. Germination MAY be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. but many seeds WILL NOT come up the year they are sown, needing winter chilling after sowing, and ONLY come up with natural spring germination.
