Grown on the Macaronesian Islands in the Atlantic of Madeira and The Azores. These truly extravagant purplish-pink flowers grow a sturdy “trunk,” which radiates the crisp looking stems, resembling a small palm tree to provide support beneath the massive trusses of deep pink flowers that blossom in the early summer. 25 Seeds Included
Cover with compost at around 2mm deep in a cool spot if possible, or a cool bright position outside. Please note: Do NOT use any heat; this seed is a slow, cold/cool germinator, and after sowing, it will usually not germinate if kept above 16 degrees celsius, so by a window would be ideal.
Grow the individual seedlings in 3” pots to start, and depending on when you want to plant them outside, you can first transplant them to a larger pot until early spring. Plant out in a well-drained open and slightly sheltered area or a large pot in a greenhouse.
They grow on average to be 70cm-1.2m and are perennials. Unlike annuals or biennials (plants that take two years to mature), these flowers are relatively low-maintenance after their initial planting and will return for many years to come bigger each year.
