detailed seed-starting info below

Native to damp meadows in Siberia. Frillier leaves, and flowers earlier than T. chinensis. According to one reference, it seldom sets seed; since I grew mine from traded seed, the identity will be tentative until the plants mature in our garden. Thus far, one plant has flowered, and it looks mostly like our T. europaeus.

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

Seed-starting details for this plant

  1. Seed from '07 trade. Baggy 65F (44%G, 10-17d).
    Also pot outside 12/13/07, 3 seedlings by April 10th

Clothier suggests treating at room temperature, followed by a period of freezing, for germination at cool temperature. Since ours germinated in sufficient numbers during the first warm period, I did not attempt the subsequent stages.
