25 seeds per packet. A rare, evergreen perennial from the sloping, forested habitats of China. Rosettes of green, lance-shaped foliage and, from March to April, the most beautiful, perfumed, lilac and white starry flowers on upright stems. Ypsilandra cavalerei differs from Y. thibetica in that it is a smaller plant with narrower leaves and the flowers turn a lovely pink shade after being pollinated. Humus rich, moist but well-drained soil in part to full shade. Sow upon receipt while as fresh as possible. Warm germinator. Do not cover small seeds with any soil as they need light in order to germinate.
