Usually grown as cultivar 'Fuji Blue', our seed came unmarked as to variety, so I'll consider them the plain species. I like all the dragonheads I've managed to grow in our garden, and this one is among the nicer varieties I've coaxed to thrive, with its healthy-looking narrow dark-green leaves and relatively large flowers. So I hope it sticks around – so far, they're blooming in their second year, starting in early June.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Lisa||Mar 21, 2016||Hi there! I am trying to grow seeds of the dracocephalum argunese. Do I need to refriderate these seeds?? I got them at a seed exchange.. I just can't seem to find some good info on what to do with the seeds! |
No, I don't think they require cold treatment, based on my germination results. Cold storage keeps the seeds fresh, but it doesn't usually fill germination requirements.
