Planting Instruction
  • In Spring & Summer large heads of creamy sweetly scented flowers form above in a canopy of long, grass like leaves. An easy to establish sculptural tree. Group for bold impact or grow as a striking tub plant on the patio, deck or veranda. How To Prepare: Soak seed overnight. Spread seed between layers of a wet paper towel. Seal in a plastic bag with plenty of air space. Refrigerate for 6 weeks. Keep moist. Where to sow: Sow anytime indoors. Best sown into a tray of quality seed raising mix. Care: Cover with clear plastic to conserve moisture. Remove plastic often to allow ventilation. Keep moist throughout the germination period. As seedlings grow provide increasing quantities of light and fresh air. Where to grow: Very adaptable. Grows just about anywhere. Does well in a damp corner where not much else will grow. Also tolerates exposed, windy & salty conditions. How: Cover with a fine soil mix to a depth of 5 mm.
