Description

This is a diminutive and  elegant form of this beautiful plant.  It has deep red spurs on the top of lemon yellow flowers. It is a very good subject for the front of gardens and also makes a very attractive pot specimen, as it flowers for a prolonged time, often over several months. It is attractive to butterflies.

Sowing advice

For best results, sow seeds immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. However, one can also sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, and often wait for spring before emerging regardless of when they are sown. But spring sowing will obviously give them a full season of growth if successful germination occurs.
