detailed seed-starting info below

Growing from a tuft of evergreen foliage, the show comes in the form of spires of airy blue stars. Asyneumas are closely related to Phyteumas; this is the first species I'm growing, so I'll have to check out the resemblance for myself - if I can keep my two seedlings alive long enough, that is. They have a reputation of finnickiness.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
