Classic! As close to black as you are likely to find. Deep, dark and velvety, for great contrast. Really stunning and adds impact to beds, borders and pots. Can be treated as HHA. Height: 15cm/6in Plant Class: Hardy Perennial (HP). Habit: Dwarf, Ground Cover.

Sow indoors, February-April, to flower the same year, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, in a tray of compost. Water well and place on a warm kitchen windowsill. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Transplant to other trays, 5cm (2″) apart, when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out into well-drained soil, May-October, 15cm (6″) apart, when frosts are over. Or, sow thinly, outdoors, May-August to flower the following year, in a seed bed, 0.5cm (¼”) deep, into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2″) apart, before planting out to flowering position from late summer onwards, spacing 15cm (6″) apart. Flowers: May to October.

    Poor rate of germination. After three weeks or so I have seven seedlings from a whole pack of seeds.It’s still too early to judge but seedlings seem vigorous and healthy
