Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
A very curious and extraordinary plant for the back of borders. Bright green sepals, where most plants have petals and a central, almost black cone. An unusual fresh cut flower, long lasting in water, or use in dried arrangements. Easy to grow, quickly forming a good sized plant with plenty of lush green foliage and always a talking point. Flowers summer. Height: 120-152cm (4-5ft).

Sowing Months Flowering Months

Cut stems down in late autumn.

Sow from late winter to mid summer 6mm (0.25in) deep in a good seed compost. Make sure the compost is moist but not wet and seal inside a polythene bag until after germination usually 5-21 days at 18-20C (65-70F). The seed usually germinates within this time but if not, place in a fridge, and leave at 3-5C for 2-3 weeks, then return to the warmth. Inspect regularly while in the fridge and remove immediately they start to germinate.

Transplant seedlings when large enough to handle into 7.5cm (3in) pots. Later plant out 30cm (12in) apart in full sun and ordinary well drained garden soil.
