PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

This exquisite woodland plant is native to the Japanese island of Honshu and seed is rarely found for sale, so don't miss out! The delicate, waxy flowers, which are very pale lilac, with darker tips to the central petals, open from attractive, spherical buds and are borne on wiry stems with attractive, ferny foliage.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Spring sowings: Sow as soon as possible in a small pot containing moist compost, seal in a plastic bag and place in fridge for 6 weeks, Then move to a cold frame and aim to provide a temperature of 50F/10C. Germination should commence within 3 weeks, but may be spread out over many months, so do not discard seed trays for a year or two. Alternatively, sow outside in autumn for spring germination.

These plants resent dryness (although they need free-draining soil) and the foliage and flowers can be badly scorched by sunlight, so position carefully to provide dappled sunlight and adequate moisture at all times, without waterlogging.
