Her photo: page 5 (?) in my fav


Crinkly rosettes of semi-evergreen leaves from which rise in summer 3ft tall stems with small white flowers with pink flecks.

Advice from Simbad:
You have to sow on the surface in spring, tiny seeds, just put in a warm spot not direct sun and mist with a fine sprayer, to keep moist, you'll end up with thousands of these, they grow like mustard and cress, lol.
Don't think it flowered till second year here.
