Melanoseris atropurpurea W/O-8108
The plants we offer have been grown by us from seed collected by August Wu and Bjørnar Olsen in Yunnan, China at 3300 to 3800 metres. Produces clumps of distinctively lobed foliage and stunning, semi-nodding, flowers in summer to autumn, which in this particular collection have a much stronger purple colour and blue centre, which insects adore (although the flowers only last one day, the plant produces plenty of them). Height to 90 cm. Well-drained soil in a sunny position. Warm germinator.
