|Cerinthe major purpurescens|
Not too many plants exhibit leaves which are nearly as blue as its flowers. I bet Farrow and Ball would come up with great names for these shades of blue for their paints! Even their common name of Honeywort is attractive - common that is for Cerinthe, not Farrow & Ball!. It's quite intriguing and I have a couple of groups both in sunny positions. Hopefully they will choose to seed everywhere! Talking of seeds, I also have some Smyrnium perfoliatum seeds which, by all accounts, are tricky to germinate. I know that they are triennials (which is unusual) and need to be sown in situ and with eternal patience!! Since I have never had any luck getting any of these seeds to germinate yet, I shall try once more 'cos I do love their acid green foliage.
