Cerinthe Major - Purpurascens

Everything about this exotic looking plant is attractive. It has deep blue bracts, rich purple-blue flowers tinged cream and glaucous leaves. It is a novel plant for tubs and borders. This half hardy perennial, which reaches the height of 60cm, should be treated as an annual.

Sow indoors, from February to April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow individually, 0.5cm deep, in pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 15-20°C is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 14-28 days. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out in May, 30cm apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over. Flowers from May to October.
