Salvia campanulata CC7706
15 seeds per packet.
The seeds we offer have been harvested from a plant grown by us from Chris Chadwell expedition seed from Nepal. A robust, clump-forming perennial that is native to the forest margins, forests, hillsides and valleys of central China and the Himalayas. Produces a large, basal rosette of heart-shaped, roughly textured leaves and upright spikes of large, bright yellow flowers from July into September. Fantastic plant for bees and other insects. Height 100 cm. Well-drained, humus rich soil in full sun to part shade.
Sow from March to June. Cover seed thinly, press in gently and keep top of compost from drying out. Keep pot 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 to grow on.
