Hardiness Hardy evergreen perennial (RHS Hardines H7)
Flowers Mid to late summer
Height 60 - 90cm
Spread 50 - 100cm
Conditions  Full sun to light shade and gritty well-drained soil.
Sow Sow on the surface of a tray of compost.  Press the seeds gently into the compost or cover the seeds very lightly with compost or vermiculite.  Do not exclude light, which helps germination.  Keep at around 20C in the day and naturally cooler at night and seedlings emerge in 2-4 weeks.  Pot on and grow until the plants are ready to plant out after the last frost in sun to part shade and well drained soil.   Protect autumn sowings over winter in a cold frame or greenhouse.
Grow Cut back flower stalks or untidy leaves in late summer or autumn once they have died down.
