Description

This relative of the Primula has tall stems of pinkish-purple flowers in spring. Cortusa matthioli (sometimes called Alpine bells) is a flowering plant native to the mountains of southern and eastern Europe, including the Alps and the Carpathians. Plants will self-seed readily.

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 20-25cm, 10"

Location: part or part sun

Hardiness zones: 4-9

Seeds per pack: 15

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is in 14-60 days after the warming period. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
