Description

Beautiful yellow-eyed, lavender-pink starry flowers open on branching stems, above shiny divided foliage, throughout the summer. It is soundly perennial here in Devon, but a well-drained protected spot is recommended elsewhere where it will makes a deep long-lived tuber. Very few seeds collected.

Sowing Advice

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.
