Bupleurum griffithii 'Decor'
Cool looking plant, mostly because of the way the stem comes through the leaves at alternating angles. Self-seeds quite rampantly in our garden, so we consider it a weed in most places - but always allow some patches to grow.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
Seed for this plant is included on my seed trade list

AND WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO START
I don't know why you'd need treated seed - it seems to germinate just fine without special treatment. A rampant reseeder in our garden, in fact.
|Elizabeth Gazzard||Feb 05, 2006||I grow Bupleurum Griffithii to sell but I am never quite sure when to pick it. The florists sometimes say if won't 'hold.' Can you help me - I have some that has been flowering for a few days now and I don't want to leave it too long. I have heard that it holds better if well into flowering.|
I know very little about cutflower properties - but I'll leave your question up, in case anybody else has an answer.
|Wendy||Sep 14, 2012||I have worked in florists and we use this a lot as "filler". What we get in the shop looks like the lower picture, so pick then. It will usually hold 5 days. It really is a great plant!|
