Botanical Name: Trachymene coerulea
Bright purple, pincushion-like flowers cover these attractive, low-growing plants. Found on Rottnest Island but also in mainland Western Australia, Trachymene is easily raised for use in garden beds, containers and native areas.
We recommend the use of Wildflower Seed Starter Granules for improved germination rates and speed. These granules provide chemicals normally found in bushfire smoke that stimulate native seed germination.
We hope you enjoy these Wildflower seeds, just another great example of seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!
Plant Height: 1m
How To Grow
Sow in warm areas anytime. In frost prone areas when danger of frost is over. Fill pots or seed trays with moist sandy soil, wet thoroughly and compress. Sow seeds thinly on surface and sprinkle enough soil around the seeds to hold them in place – do not bury them. Keep moist and cover with clear polythene. Remove when germination commences. Place in warm shady position to germinate fully. Thin out if seedlings are crowded. Transplant to permanent positions when about 5cm (2in) high, spaced 20-30cm (8-12in) apart. Water in well and water regularly particularly in dry weather. Protect from slugs and snails.
When To Plant
All year round except in hottest or coldest weather.
