Description

A treasured perennial, this hardy plant produces amazingly-blue and completely round and intriguing globes! Flowers attract butterflies, and are excellent for drying. Plants are easy to grow, drought tolerant, disease resistant, and will grow in poor soils. Plants form tidy clumps, and are not invasive.

Type: Perennial

Hardiness zones: 3-9

Height: 24"-36", 60-90cm

Location: Sun or part sun

Seeds per pack: 10

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. Sow the seeds on the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Do not bury the seeds as light is required for germination. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold-moist stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature (20-22 °C, 68-72 °F) for them to germinate. Germination is generally within 60 days after the warming period, though they could take a few months. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and early May, is in a cold frame or cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
