Collected from the best cultivars in our garden, seedlings will produce large, upward-facing, red saucer-shaped flowers above low hummocks of deeply divided leaves. Bone hardy, and very reliable in making a blazing and long-lived display each spring and summer.
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.
