Sorry Sold Out for 2023
30 small seeds per packet.
A rarely grown, clump-forming, perennial species in the Crassulaceae (Sedum) family that is native to the alpine meadows and slopes of China and Kazakhstan. Erect, succulent foliage is topped by unusual, starry, white and red flowers from May to July. Height 50 cm. Well-drained soil in full sun to light shade. Ideal for growing in a rock garden. A real favourite with the bees!
Sow from autumn to spring. Surface sow small seeds thinly, press in gently and keep top of pot moist. Keep pot outdoors or in cold frame over winter. Seeds germinate in spring.
Alternatively, if seeds can’t be sown in autumn or early spring use the following method: mix seeds with damp vermiculite and place inside a ziplock bag, keep bag somewhere warm for 3 weeks, then place in fridge (not freezer) for 8 weeks. Next spread mixture on top of a pot, thinly cover with compost or grit and keep warm at 15 to 20°C until germination, then move to somewhere cooler.
Carefully prick out seedlings when they have developed true leaves and are large enough to transplant to individual pots for growing on.
