Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews Video
Also known as Honeywort, this unusual annual bears rounded, blue-green leaves on slender, upright stems. From late spring onwards masses of nodding, rich purple flowers, surrounded by blue-purple bracts appear at the stem tips, which are highly attractive to bees. With a bushy habit, Cerinthe major ‘Purpurascens’ is a fantastic addition to annual beds or used to fill gaps in herbaceous borders, where it is happy in any well drained soil. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Honeywort plants seed freely. If seedlings are not required, deadhead the faded Cerinthe flowers as they fade.
Pot up Cerinthe plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When Cerinthe plants are well grown, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant Honeywort in full sun or part shade, in poor, well drained neutral or alkaline soil. On heavier soils, incorporate plenty of grit to improve drainage, prior to planting.
