Full sun, deciduous, clump forming.
Deadhead to prolong flowering.
Sow on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Cover with a very fine sprinkling of compost.
Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 14 to 21 days at 18°C (64°F) but may be erratic, we have failed so far to germinate this.
