A. atropurpureum has a bloom period of about 3 weeks.

Cultivation:
Sow in autumn into pots using standard loam-based seed compost mixed with coarse horticultural sand. Mix in a ratio of 1 part compost to 1 part sand. Cover lightly with compost, and place outside, explosed to all the weathers. Germination takes place the following spring. Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. May flower in its first year.
