Cucubalus Baccifer (Silene)
This intriguing, rare and beautiful curiosity from the hills of Japan has creeping, straggling stems, which are covered with small pointed leaves and frilly greenish-white flowers, which in turn produce blackcurrant-like berries. Surprisingly, this mound-forming plant is a most unlikely member of the dianthus family. In woodland or a shady place it will gently romp along and mystify all who see it!
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.
