Berkheya purpurea

Preferred Climate: Mediterranean
Harvest Date: Tuesday 25 August, 2009
Seed count: 30-40

This striking tender perennial from South Africa produces abundant spiny leaves on equally spiny winged stems. Grown as an annual in temperate regions, these plants grow to 60cm (2ft) in or more height, with pale purple daisy-like flowers produced successively throughout the summer and into the autumn.

Sow seeds in containers in early spring - gentle bottom heat may help improve germination. Do not plant out until all danger of frost is passed. Grow in full sun in moderately fertile garden soil with good drainage. For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.
