Onosma sericeum

Tibetan Onosma

Seed count: 15-20   
Onosma sericeum
Onosma sericeum
Native Region: Himalayas, Tibet
Zone Range: 04-09
Preferred Climate: Temperate to dry subalpine
Harvest Date: Tuesday 16 July, 2013
Seed count: 15-20

This unusual plant from the Tibetan Himalayas is rarely seen by western gardeners and is rarely available. The tight rosettes extend in the spring to produce 30cm (12in) stems that sport a succession of 2cm (1in) primrose yellow tubular flowers for most of the summer. An exotic but subtle plant for rock gardens, difficult planting situations, and rocky, dry gardens.

Sow seed in containers in spring. Avoid root disturbance when transplanting. Grow in well drained soil or rocky scree. Do not fertilize. Seed may also be sprinkled <i><b>in situ</b></i> between rocks in an alpine garden. For maximum freshness, please keep seed refrigerated in its original packaging until it is time to plant.

Harvest Date: Tuesday 16 July, 2013
