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).
|The flowers of this interesting, shade-loving plant are very soft, pale green, sometimes with a red margin and are leathery in texture. It is a haven for hibernating ladybirds, which can be found nestling in and around the flowers all winter.|
|Sowing and/or growing instructions|
|Sow outside, where they are to flower, or in pots or trays at any time of year, but preferably in autumn, as the seeds must have a lengthy period of cold and damp in order to germinate successfully. Thin direct-sown seedlings to a foot or so apart, or transplant potted seedlings and grow on in individual pots until ready to plant out.|
