Cerinthe Major Purpurescens
"Honeywort" or "Wax-Flower", much loved by bees and flowering throughout spring and summer, it has deep blue pendulous bracts which are packed onto stems densely clad with waxy blue-green leaves. This treasure is one of the fastest growing plants available.
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.
