Heteropappus meyendorfii 'Blue Knoll'

Half-hardy Perennial

Seed of this amazing new garden plant can be sown early in the year* and by the same autumn will be completely smothered in hundreds and thousands of shiny, light reflecting flowers, forming perfect mounds (or knolls) 30cm (12in) high and 45cm (18in) across. During a season when little else is in flower, they are a perfect fit for a change in containers or will brighten up the border, looking like blue charm chrysanthemums. No matter what the weather conditions - torrential rain, snow or frost they continue to look far and away the best, brightest plant in the garden, even right through November. *Sow during January/February to flower in October/November. Sow September/October to flower following September/October.

Ideal For:
patio, ground cover
Flowering Period:
September, October, November

Germinate at 18-20C (64-68F) on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Apply a fine sprinkling of vermiculite, but do not cover the seed completely. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 10-21 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination.

Transplant seedlings, when large enough to handle into trays or 7.5cm (3in) pots. Grow on in cooler conditions for 10-15 days before planting out. Plant outside after all risk of frost, 30cm (12in) apart.

  1. Looking good

    By Keith Fallon 07-04-2017

    Determined to save money on plants this year, copious amounts of seeds purchased from Thompson & Morgan has been done. Seeds arrived well packed and in good time. The prices were excellent value for the amount of seeds in the packs. The seed packets have comprehensive instructions (which really helped me, as new to using seeds). I treated myself to a heated propagator and all the seeds have done extremely well and now patiently waiting in the greenhouse for all risk of frost to pass before planting out starts. Very impressed with the increased range of flowers I will now have due to purchasing seeds instead of flower plants locally and will def be back from more time and time again, highly recommended seeds.
