Melianthus Major

This is the giant of the family, carrying massive, deeply-cut grey leaves. Bizarre, brownish flowers produce inflated seedpods in late summer. It is often cut down by frost but sprouts again from the base. "Melianthus has probably the most beautiful large foliage of any plant that can be grown out of doors in these islands".

These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and cold-stored for several months. They should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 15 and 20 degrees C. Seeds generally germinate within 4 to 6 weeks although some varieties may take much longer.
