From strong clumps of long, spathulate leaves, arise thin dividing stems carrying semi-doubled, yellow-eyed daisies which are delicately blotched with purple. This pretty plant is one of the few South American asters, coming from Chile and Argentina and as far south as Tierra Del Fuego, which is where this seed was collected in the wild.
Sowing advice: Seeds can be sown at any time but are best sown in winter or early spring to benefit from a cold spell in the wet compost to break their dormancy. We advise covering seeds very thinly with sand or fine grit to about the depth of the seed size. If the seeds do not come up within 6 to 12 weeks the damp seed tray can be given cold treatment in a fridge for about four weeks. They may still take very many months to appear, so please never discard the pot or tray.
